Details of the representation of body regions innervated by the trigeminal nerve were elucidated in monkey cerebral cortex. Microelectrode recording was used to generate somatosensory maps in the posterior bank of the central sulcus and on the exposed cortical surface lateral to the lateral tip of the central sulcus in Macaca nemestrina. The area innervated by the contralateral trigeminal nerve is represented in an 8-mm mediolateral extent of area 3b lateral to the representation of the hand… CONTINUE READING
