The influence of an acute bout of moderate‐intensity cycling exercise on sensorimotor integration

The results suggest that acute exercise has unique effects on sensorimotor integration, which are not accompanied by concurrent changes in somatosensory or motor cortical excitability.

Effects of Moderate Exercise on Cortical Resilience: A Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Study Targeting the Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex

Findings support the hypothesis that exercise promotes cortical resilience, specifically in relation to the brain regions that support inhibitory control, after transient perturbation via continuous theta burst stimulation.

Modulating break types induces divergent low band EEG processes during post-break improvement: A power spectral analysis

Conventional wisdom suggests mid-task rest as a potential approach to relieve the time-on-task (TOT) effect while accumulating evidence indicated that acute exercise might also effectively restore

Classification of somatosensory cortex activities using fNIRS

The interaction between felt touch and tactile consequences of observed actions: an action-based somatosensory congruency paradigm.

It is argued that the P3-complex may reflect higher-order self-other distinction by signaling simulated action-based touch that does not match own tactile information, which might help understand higher- order social processes from a somatosensory point of view.

Utilization of fNIRS signals as feedback for sensory decoding

The results indicate the potential of fNIRS to be used as an objective measure to discriminate between different tactile stimulations in the somatosensory cortex of brain.

Neural correlates of texture perception during active touch

Tactile suppression in goal-directed movement

Future research should focus on studying naturalistic movements, or sequences of movements, that share a common meaning or goal, and establishes contextual influences as the defining influences on tactile suppression.



Task-Relevant Modulation of Contralateral and Ipsilateral Primary Somatosensory Cortex and the Role of a Prefrontal-Cortical Sensory Gating System

It is concluded that SI modulation is dependent on task relevancy and that this modulation may be regulated, at least in part, by the prefrontal cortex.

Early cognitive components of somatosensory event-related potentials.

Spatial attention related SEP amplitude modulations covary with BOLD signal in S1--a simultaneous EEG--fMRI study.

The correlation between early and long-latency SEP components and the BOLD effect suggest that spatial-selective attention enhances processing in S1 at 2 time points: During an early passage of the signal and during a later passage, probably via re-entrant feedback from higher cortical areas.

Crossmodal influences in somatosensory cortex: Interaction of vision and touch

Results of the whole‐brain analysis revealed a common fronto‐parietal network that was active across both the bimodal and unimodal task conditions, suggesting that these regions are sensitive to the attentional and motor‐planning aspects of the task rather than the unimodals or bimmodal nature of the stimuli.

Effects of aerobic exercise and gender on visual and auditory P300, reaction time, and accuracy

The enhancement of cognitive information processing speed during moderate aerobic exercise, although operating across genders and sensory modalities, is not a global facilitation of cognition, but is accompanied by decreased attention and increased errors.

Active attention modulates passive attention-related neural responses to sudden somatosensory input against a silent background

Active attention enhances neural responses related to passive shifts of attention to somatosensory signals suddenly presented against a silent background, indicating that top-down signals for detecting target stimuli interact with passive shiftsof attention caused by bottom-up signals.
