Sensory system examination is a very important part of clinical neurology. Quantitative sensory studies using automated systems to evaluate the sensory function are useful in clinical and experimental studies of peripheral neuropathies. This chapter discusses the sensory receptors, sensory examination, and a quantitative system designed to deliver sensory stimuli, including touch-pressure, vibration, thermal, and heat-pain sensory stimuli, in a quantifiable and reproducible manner.
