Which area of the body had the smallest two-pointdiscrimination?c.Compare the tuning fork time values to the two-point discrimination test distance. Was there any correlation betweenthe 2 values? How might these values give insight to the size of the receptive field and the number of neurons present in thespecific area tested?2.a.Was there a relationship between sensory adaptation with both vibration time and two-point discrimination? Does thisprovide insight to the number of neurons dedicated to innervate a specific area of the body? Please explain.
