Microelectrode studies of single units in the human thalamus during stereotactic surgery offer a unique opportunity to study the organization and plasticity of the sensory thalamus. In this review the authors present results using single-unit microelectrode recording in the mapping of human sensory thalamus in a variety of patients. First they outline the overall organization of the human sensory thalamus, including both somatosensory and pain pathways. They also show that the sensory maps for… CONTINUE READING
