KEY POINTS The brainstem dorsal column nuclei (DCN) process sensory information arising from the body before it reaches the brain and becomes conscious. Despite significant investigations into sensory coding in peripheral nerves and the somatosensory cortex, little is known about how sensory information arising from the periphery is represented in the DCN. Following stimulation of hind-limb nerves, we mapped and characterised the evoked electrical signatures across the DCN surface. We show that… CONTINUE READING
