When two cylinders are passively moved in-phase on the volar surface of the right second and third fingers, human subjects estimate the stimuli to originate from one object, whereas two separate objects are estimated for out-of-phase stimuli. While five blindfolded subjects performed this estimation task, brain activity was measured by fMRI. The in-phase stimuli activated the left intraparietal and inferior parietal areas significantly more than did out-of-phase stimuli. These parietal regions… CONTINUE READING
