    Activity in human unmyelinated efferent nerve fibres was recorded from seven upper limb cutaneous nerve fascicles. The activity induced by contralateral nerve trunk stimulation or tone burst was averaged and could be compared providing the stimuli were delivered at random times and in a random sequence. The average evoked sympathetic nerve responses to nerve trunk stimulation and tone burst were identical in latency and duration.
