Abstract

The primary source of information in tactile sensing is the train of neural impulses emitted by mechanoreceptors embedded in the skin. To better understand the mechanics of touch, it is necessary to establish a quantitative relationship between the stress state at a mechanoreceptor location and the neural response of the receptor to given mechanical stimulus. Hence, a 3-dimensional finite element model of the monkey pad, which can be used to predict the stress state at the receptor location for a variety of loadings applied on the surface of the fingerpad, is developed. This paper demonstrates its ability to predict biomechanical and neurophysiological experimental data.
