In non-human primates, a bilateral representation of unilaterally presented somatosensory information can be found at the lowest level of cortical processing as indicated by the presence of neurons with bilateral receptive fields in the hand region of primary somatosensory (SI) cortex. In humans, such bilateral activation of SI is considered controversial due to highly variable detection rates for the much weaker ipsilateral response across different studies (ranging from 3% to 100%). Second… CONTINUE READING
