Magnitude estimation and magnitude production: stimulus frequency effects on magnitudes of lingual vibrotactile sensation



Magnitude estimation and magnitude production: stimulus frequency effects on magnitudes of lingual vibrotactile sensation



Perceptual and Motor Skills 64(2): 663-670



The methods of magnitude estimation and magnitude production were employed to investigate the effects of stimulus frequency on supra-threshold lingual-vibrotactile sensation-magnitude functions. The method of magnitude estimation was used to obtain numerical judgments of sensation magnitudes for nine stimulus intensities presented to the anterior dorsum of the tongue. The vibrotactile stimulus frequencies employed for 10 subjects (M age = 21.1 yr.) were 100, 250, and 400 Hz. The numerical responses obtained during the magnitude-estimation task were in turn used as stimuli to obtain magnitude-production values for the same three vibrotactile stimulus frequencies. The results appeared to present two suggestions. First, the effects of stimulus frequency on lingual vibrotactile-sensation magnitudes may be dependent on the psychophysical method used in any particular experiment. Second, lingual-vibrotactile magnitude-estimation scales may demonstrate asymptotic growth functions above about 25 dB sensation level. The limitation in the growth of sensation magnitude occurred for all three vibrotactile stimulus frequencies employed.
