The EC is tested with absent vision and is a measure of the vestibular and somatosensory systems
to maintain balance.
1) This requires integration of multiple systems: the visual, vestibular, and somatosensory systems
coordinate sensory perception of the body's position, while the motor system enables maintenance of balance in response to sensory stimuli, which in turn are coordinated by cognitive processes.
79) attempted to concurrently record SEPs while performing the typing task, the stimulus intended to be used to stimulate the somatosensory system
may have served as an attentional, cognitive, or peripheral perturbation to motor performance that could have masked changes in the targeted SEP peaks.
Investigation of the sources of instability in patients with DN has shown the need to rehabilitate their somatosensory system
and ankle movement strategy .
It covers the basic elements of the nervous system, including neurons and synapses, neurotransmitters and receptors, glial cells, and development, and the peripheral and central components of the somatosensory system
and their processing.
Because the vestibular system senses head motion, it is less sensitive to body sway than is the visual or the somatosensory system
The project is motivated by the combination of a basic finding about the human somatosensory system
and an interfacing technology leading to an ergonomically optimized highly transparent interface applicable to the assembly of micro-parts.
These sensory systems include the olfactory system, which detects odours, and the somatosensory system
, responsible for detecting irritants, chemicals that cause pain, tingling, burning, stinging, or prickling.
One potentially promising method for assessing the mechanisms that contribute to the development and/or maintenance of neuropathic pain after SCI is the use of quantitative sensory testing (QST) to evaluate the hypoand hypersensitivity of the somatosensory system
These effects of facial skin stretch indicate the involvement of the somatosensory system
in the neural processing of speech sounds.
The somatosensory system
can be subdivided into the tactile and the proprioceptive systems.
The somatosensory (SOM) ratio compares condition 2 with condition 1 and reflects the participant's ability to use input from the somatosensory system
to maintain balance.
