Researchers have successfully mapped brain networks that are responsible for perception and movements linked to touch. The findings may provide new insights into the connection between movement and touch.
Following targeted motor and sensory reinnervation, a procedure that reroutes residual limb nerves to intact muscles and skin in amputees, the brain remaps both motor and sensory pathways. Additionally, researchers note, TMSR may help counteract poorly adapted cortical plasticity following amputation.
A new study reveals the neural circuitry that helps shape our sensory perceptions.
New brain development findings could shed light on some neurological problems, such as ASD.
