Interactions between somatosensory afferents arriving from different points in the periphery play an important role in sensory discrimination and also provide the substrate for plasticity following peripheral injury. To examine the extent and time course of such interactions, extracellular recordings were made from neurons in the primary somatosensory cortex and the ventroposterior lateral thalamus of anesthetized raccoons. Interactions between adjacent digits were studied using the… CONTINUE READING
