You are measuring the response of two different touch receptors to different pressure stimuli.
First, you present both cells with a long constant pressure (Experiment #1).
Cell A responds to the onset of the stimulus but its firing rate decreases quickly.
Cell B responds more slowly to the onset of the stimulus, but fires at a relatively constant rate until the stimulus is removed.
The maximum firing rate of Cell A and Cell B in Experiment #1 is the same.
You are planning a new experiment in which you will present the cells with a stimulus which turns on and off every sec (Experiment #2).
Using what you have learned from Experiment #1, which of the following results do you predict will happen in Experiment #2?
