The aim of this work was to study the degree of neuronal synchronization occurring within the portion of the somatosensory cortex devoted to hand control during an external sensory stimulation. In this way, we focused on the properties of the sensory cortical representation, rather than the more investigated motor one. To this aim, we collected magnetoencephalograhic data from healthy subjects during separate stimulation of their thumbs and little fingers and analyzed these data by means of a… CONTINUE READING
