The primary somatosensory cortex lies in the posterior bank of the rolandic fissure representing Brodmann's area 3b in the parietal lobe.
Regarding NSI health symptoms, patients reporting more severe affective symptoms were about 25 percent more likely (aOR = 1.24, 95% CI: 1.14-1.34) to have a Clinician N/ACRM Y outcome than patients reporting less severe affective symptoms; those reporting more severe somatosensory, cognitive, and vestibular symptoms were, by contrast, significantly less likely (aOR = 0.79-0.85, 95% CI: 0.73-0.93) to have this outcome.
Finally, somatosensory information also plays a role in verticality representation, and may even serve as a compensatory mechanism for vestibular inputs if vestibular loss is experienced (23).
For the new study, led by postdoctoral scholar Justin Lieber, PhD, the researchers recorded the corresponding responses to the same textures directly from the brain, using electrodes implanted into the somatosensory cortex of the monkeys.

Postural control is the ability to select and integrate somatosensory, visual and vestibular system outputs to the central nervous system and generate motor outputs according to the situation.
The most accepted biologic hypotheses include: * genetic risks * interoceptive sensitivity * somatosensory amplification * emotion processing variances * autonomic nervous system dysfunction.
Although none of our patients presented with epilepsy, the mean amplitude of somatosensory cortical response was significantly higher compared to the control group.
Few studies analyzed the interaction between MI and external somatosensory inputs, such as those induced by somatosensory electrical nerve stimulation (SS).
Since the 1950s, the term "visual dependence" has been used to describe inappropriate reliance on visual cues in postural behavior in situations where it might be better to use somatosensory or vestibular inputs for balance.
