Somatosensory Cortical Neurons Decode Tactile Input Patterns and Location from Both Dominant and Non-dominant Digits

Enander, Jonas M.D. LU and Jörntell, Henrik LU (2019) In Cell Reports
Abstract

Enander and Jörntell record spike responses in neocortical neurons in primary somatosensory cortex provided with tactile inputs from non-adjacent digits. Regardless of whether the neurons were located in specific digit-dominated subregions, each neuron decoded the tactile inputs from either digit as well as the input location.
