[Focused ultrasound in research on somatic reception]
Focused ultrasound has been used to induce the following skin sensations: tactile and temperature ones; specific and unspecific pain, underskin or deep sensations: tactile sensations and some varieties of pain (muscle, periosteum and so on). It has been established that: somatic reception is attributed to mechanoreception; the same receptive structures are cold and warm ones; ultrasound has the sensibilized action. Sensation differences of corporal and auricular acupuncture points and some accidental skin underskin spots have been investigated.
