    Abstract

    25 participants (20 women, 5 men) were tested for sensitivity in discrimination between sets of six movements centered on 8°, 11°, and 14°, and separated by 0.3°. Both inversion and plantar flexion movements were tested. Discrimination of the extent of inversion movement was observed to decline linearly with increasing depth; however, for plantar flexion, the discrimination function for movement extent was found to be non-linear.
