Threshold of Feeling

A term in audiology to describe the levels and frequencies at which humans can perceive sounds through the nerve cells in the skin. This sensitivity decreases rapidly at frequencies above 1000 Hz. Deaf people are able to perceive music in this way and, for example, dance to the bass rhythm in the floor.
