TLDR
A variety of recent experiments are reported, showing that in this kind of touching, which is closely connected with the states of muscles, the nervous system cleverly exploits the physics of rotations. Expand
Lack of conscious recognition of one's own actions in a haptically deafferented patient
TLDR
It is suggested that information derived from efferent processes cannot in themselves be a source for conscious experience about the authors' own actions. Expand
When action is not enough: Tool-use reveals tactile-dependent access to Body Schema
TLDR
Results showed that both the motor and perceptual tasks were sensitive to the update of the forearm representation, but only when the localization task (perceptual or motor) was driven by a tactile input, revealing that the motor output is not sufficient per se, but has to be coupled with tactually mediated information to guarantee access to the BS.

On Proprioception in Action: Multimodality versus Deafferentation
Recent research on proprioception reveals that it relies on a systematically distorted model of bodily dimensions. This generates a puzzle about proprioception in action control: action requiresExpand
Somatosensory Loss Influences the Adoption of Self-Centered Versus Decentered Perspectives
TLDR
The deafferented patients rely on strategies that are more prone to interindividual differences, which highlights the crucial role of somatosensory information in adopting self-centered spatial perspectives. Expand
The importance of the sense of touch in virtual and real environments
TLDR
Providing users with inadequate somesthetic feedback in virtual environments might impair their performance, just as major somesthetic loss does. Expand
Timing of bimanual movements and deafferentation: implications for the role of sensory movement effects
TLDR
The results of the present study support another hypothesis, namely that bimanual timing profits from the averaging of different central control signals that relate to each effector’s movements. Expand
A Psychological Approach to Human Voluntary Movements , " and Response of the Author
F. Mechsner (2004) bases his argument for ihe primacy of perception on a simplitled interpretation of phase transition findings. The authors show that attention to the details of phase transitionExpand
The Effect of Chronic Deafferentation on Mental Imagery: A Case Study
TLDR
The results suggest that kinaesthetic afferent signals from the body periphery play a crucial role in enabling and maintaining central sensorimotor representations and hence the ability to incorporate kinesthetic information into the imagery processes. Expand

Localization without content. A tactile analogue of 'blind sight'.
We examined the ability of a patient, who had a cerebral lesion involving the left posterior hemisphere, to identify and to localize stimuli applied to her "deafferented" right upper limb. WeExpand
The role of proprioceptive information for the production of isometric forces and for handwriting tasks.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that, in absence of visual information, proprioceptive information is necessary to calibrate the hand in space. Expand
The control of hand movements in a case of hemianaesthesia following a parietal lesion.
TLDR
A 46-year-old patient with a lesion limited to the left retrorolandic area without involvement of the prerolandic motor strip was examined and the role of somatosensory cortex in conveying kinesthetic input to the motor areas and the importance of vision in substituting for kinaesthetic loss are discussed.

The perceptions of force and of movement in a man without large myelinated sensory afferents below the neck.
TLDR
It is concluded that a crude sense of effort remains which may have a peripheral origin and differences in movement ability between this subject and others with similar if less pure sensory neuropathies are ascribed to rehabilitation. Expand
Cognitive Versus Sensorimotor Encoding of Spatial Information
The study of spatially oriented behaviour has been dominated by the trenchant opposition between behaviourist and cognitivist theories. Despite the fact that this traditional controversy seems toExpand
Manual motor performance in a deafferented man.
TLDR
It is shown that a man deafferented by a severe peripheral sensory neuropathy could produce a very wide range of preprogrammed finger movements with remarkable accuracy, involving complex muscle synergies of the hand and forearm muscles. Expand
Motor control in humans with large-fiber sensory neuropathy.
TLDR
Proprioceptive afferent inputs are important for accurate postural maintenance and the fine control of movement in patients with a large-fiber sensory neuropathy associated with impaired position, vibration and cutaneous sensation. Expand
Anticipatory postural adjustment in the absence of normal peripheral feedback
TLDR
It is concluded that this postural adjustment is of central origin since it can be generated in the absence of peripheral feedback. Expand

TLDR
The possibility is examined that a "repertoire" of postural adjustments exists and the possible sites of the repertoire are discussed as well as the level at which the parallel or "sequential" control of posture and movement might be organized. Expand
Rapid elbow flexion in the absence of proprioceptive and cutaneous feedback.
TLDR
It is concluded that the central nervous system can generate a sequence of commands to accelerate and decelerate a limb in the absence of peripheral feedback, however, information from the moving limb is required to adjust the magnitude and time of onset of deceleration. Expand
