explain the physiological mechanisms that enable us to distinguish by touch alone between a pin prick and the pressure of the blunt end of a pencil being pressed firmly onto the back of the hand

Well, you are supposed to do this, not us. We do not make your homework for you. Get some research done, we may help if there are things that you do not understand, but do not expect other people to work for you.

Just read how the question is written. Please would not have hurt either... :evil:

And if you really want to give me a title, Dr would be more appropriate than sir, I do not belong to english nobility :wink: But it is really not mandatory

It's common in patriacal socicieties patrick, japanese use the -san attachment for elders and the -chan attachment for minors. i'm sure french language uses a formal "you" and an informal "you".

We have different words for the two 'you' s. I don't really like them, because I sometimes cannot be sure which one to call. ;)

Indeed French has 2 different form of you... But living in labs were being informal is the rule rather than in expression, I am getting less and less used to use word to show my respect (even if I agree I do use other ways to do that, less obvious, but as significant for people who share the same habits..)
No offense intended Victor, I was just surprised.

I wuill not react anymore to the "Sir Patrick", and please forget the Dr, I have never been able to get used to it. I still can't help laughing when receive mail or anything with this name :D

But I will stop on this subject, we start drifting more than a little off Topic
