The patient is told to say "yes" or "no" according as he feels or does not feel the touch of the examiner's finger; in the case of functional anesthesia he may say "no" when an anesthetic area is touched (the eyes being closed), but will say nothing, being unaware that he is touched, in case of organic anesthesia.
By Stedman, Thomas Lathrop
