Abstract

E x t r a c e l l u l a r r eco rd ing of unit ac t iv i ty conf i rmed the ex i s tence of somato top ica l ly o rgan ized connect ions between the two s o m a t o s e n s o r y a r e a s of the cor tex . Neurons of one s o m a t o s e n s o r y a r e a , responding to p e r i p h e r a l s t imula t ion , can i n t e r a c t only with ce l l s of the o ther s o m a t o s e n s o r y a r e a r ece iv ing impulses f rom homologous r e c e p t o r zones . These e x p e r i m e n t s demons t r a t e that it is poss ib l e , in p r inc ip l e , for c lose in te rac t ion to take p lace be tween two a r e a s of the somat ic cor tex in the cour se of s e n s o r y ana ly s i s .
