The neural pathways subserving the sensation of temperature are virtually unknown. However, recent findings in the monkey suggest that the sensation of cold may be mediated by an ascending pathway relaying in the posterior part of the thalamic ventromedial nucleus (VMpo). To test this hypothesis we examined the responses of neurons to thermal stimulation of(More)
Serial fMRI was performed in a patient who underwent transfer of the left great toe to the hand following amputation of the right thumb. Motor activation within the primary sensorimotor cortex (SMC) of both hemispheres was quantified over 2 years, showing a transient increase in contralateral but not ipsilateral primary SMC. The temporal pattern of motor(More)
