Slow touch and ultrafast pain fibres: Revisiting peripheral nerve classification‘  in the journal of Clinical Neurophysiology. Click here to read the full article .


  • Conduction velocity of peripheral somatosensory afferents has been intimately linked to function.

  • Recently, the classical relation between nerve conduction and function has become blurred.

  • We review evidence for C fibres signalling touch and Aβ fibres signalling pain with implications for taxonomy.
