Dickhaus: Concerning your second question; all our results are in favour of the RA-receptors being velocity detectors. For example: the tuning curves make reasonable that they do not detect acceleration but velocity. If you plot the amplitude of a sinusoidal stimulus against the stimulus frequency when just one spike is elicited, straight lines with slopes near -1 are obtained in log coordinates. This slope value of the tuning curves indicates that these r e ceptors are sensitive to displacement velocity.
