The posterolateral part of the parietal association cortex (area 7 of Brodmann) was investigated in three awake, behaving macaque monkeys using transdural microelectrode recording technique. Only one of the 114 cells isolated remained unidentified. Of the cells 79% responded to somesthetic (39%) or visual (23%) or both somesthetic and visual (17%) stimulation. The somesthetic receptive fields were large, covering, for instance, the whole arm or hand. Most receptive fields were on the upper… CONTINUE READING
