The activity of primate primary somatosensory (SI) cortical neurons was examined in monkeys trained to perform wrist movements in response to visual or vibratory cues using single-unit, extracellular recording techniques. Neuronal discharge rates associated with peripheral stimulus onset often differed depending upon the modality of the stimulus and whether the animals were instructed to make wrist movements or withhold them. Premovement activity changes that led muscle activation commonly were… CONTINUE READING
