Besides visual input and vestibular afferents, proprioceptive input from muscle spindle receptors of the neck region contributes to the perception of egocentric space. Using fMRI we performed a neck muscle vibration paradigm in humans in order to detect brain areas involved in processing changes of the head position in relation to the rest of the body. We identified a network of primary and secondary cortical areas: (I) regions that presumably receive direct proprioceptive thalamic input such… CONTINUE READING
