Neurology-laboratory and clinical research developments series


Neurological researchers present results of investigation into various aspects of receptor and processing centers that produce the sensory modalities such as touch, temperature, proprioception, and nociception. Their topics include the role of the somatosensory cortex in pain processing, rehabilitation after stroke using brain-computer interfaces and neurostimulation, mechanism of epileptogenesis in the somatosensory cortex in rats with genetic absence epilepsy, thermo-nociceptive responses evoked by laser pulses in the primary somatosensory cortex, and the regulation of the critical period for whisker lesion-induced barrel structural plasticity in the mouse somatosensory cortex.
