HumanAntiGravitySuit: SKIN STRETCHING AND MOVEMENT ILLUSIONS Simon Gandevia has been at this whole neurophysiology business for decades. I tried to read his papers a number of years ago (but got distracted by something else, as usual..)Anyway, I remember one paper in which he had difficulty separating all those annoying cutaneous receptors away from all the juicy muscle spindle receptors he was actually trying to get at and measure.

Differential Diagnosis of Elevated 1st Rib – Manual Therapy Ever treat a stubborn first rib? I know I have over the years.
