Supplemental data for: Tactile innervation densities across the whole body
Supplemental data for: Tactile innervation densities across the whole body, by Giulia Corniani and Hannes P. Saal. Journal of Neurophysiology 124 (2020).
The Excel spreadsheet contains the following supplemental material:
Supplemental Table 1: Calculations for total number and density of A-beta tactile fibers innervating the face.
Supplemental Table 2: Calculations for total number and density of A-beta tactile fibers innervating the hairy skin, excluding the face. Estimates are based on fiber counts in dorsal root ganglia and estimates of the skin territory innervated by each dermatome.
Supplemental Table 3: A tally of slowly and fast-adapting fibers reported in the microneurography literature of the hairy skin. Fiber proportions are calculated for two skin regions: the hand dorsum and arms, as well as the foot dorsum and legs.
