Experiments on functional role of peripheral input to motor cortex during voluntary movements in the monkey.

Abstract

The functional role of sensory input to the motor cortex was studied by interrupting two major input pathways. One was the dorsal column, which sends the input directly through the thalamus to the motor cortex, and the other was the sensory cortex, which transfers its input through association fibers. Removal of the sensory cortex produced very little motor… (More)
