Neural mechanisms of absolute tactile localization in monkeys.

Abstract

Macaca nemestrina monkeys were trained to indicate the location of suprathreshold tactile stimuli delivered to the glabrous skin of either foot. The testing paradigm involved self-initiated trials (a bar press), followed by 10-Hz stimulation at one of six locations (e.g., on the distal phalanx of the second toe on the left foot), providing the opportunity… (More)
