  1. 1. Vibration exposure of the glabrous skin of the human hand

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Ronnie Lundström; Umeå universitet.; [1985]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Vibration; hand; skin; mechanical impedance; mechanoreceptors; tactile perception; high-frequency;

    Abstract : An occupational exposure to hand-arm vibration can cause a complex of neurological, vascular and musculo-skeletal disturbances, known as the 'vibration syndrome'. However, the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms are not at all clear. READ MORE

  2. 2. To grip and not to slip sensorimotor mechanisms in reactive control of grasp stability

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Charlotte Häger Ross; Umeå universitet.; [1995]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; human; hand; precision grip; grasp force; friction; cutaneous mechanoreceptors; sensorimotor integration; motor control;

    Abstract : The reactive control of fingertip forces maintaining grasp stability was examined in man during a prehensile task. Blindfolded subjects used the precision grip between the tips of index finger and thumb to restrain an object that was subjected to unpredictable load forces. These were delivered tangential to the parallel grip surfaces of the object. READ MORE

  3. 3. Observations on morphology and function of cutaneous and subcutaneous sensory mechanoreceptors : an experimental study in mammals

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Author : Birgit Stark; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mechanoreceptors; somatosensory organisation; blood-nerve barrier; Glucose transporter-1; nerve regeneration; TGF-ß family; neurotrophin receptors;

    Abstract : Tactile sensory discrimination is dependent upon an intact system of peripheral mechanoreceptors, their nerve fibre afferents with cell bodies in the dorsal root ganglion and the dorsal column-medial lemniscal system which relays tactile information from the skin to the cortex. Injury to any part of the afferent pathways leads to compromised mechanoreceptive perception. READ MORE

  4. 4. Analysis of Adaptation in Human Postural Control

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish För att vi människor ska kunna upprätthålla balansen och utföra rörelser behöver vi ett komplext styrsystem som kontinuerligt kontrollerar och samordnar kroppens rörelser. Detta styrsystem, som kallas postural kontroll, får sin information från synen, balanssinnet (vestibularisorganen), led-muskelsinnet (proprioception) och receptorer i huden (mekanoreceptorer).
