    High-order thalamic inputs to primary somatosensory cortex are stronger and longer lasting than cortical inputs

    Wanying Zhang, Randy M Bruno
    Secondary thalamic nuclei may provide stronger, longer-lasting input to superficial layers of primary sensory cortex than other cortical areas can.

    Area 2 of primary somatosensory cortex encodes kinematics of the whole arm

    Raeed H Chowdhury et al.
    Area 2 of somatosensory cortex represents kinematic details of the entire arm during movement, but this mapping from limb state to neural activity differs for reaching and passive limb displacement.

    Revealing the neural fingerprints of a missing hand

    Sanne Kikkert et al.
    The brain continues to represent individual fingers in primary somatosensory cortex decades after the amputation of a hand, indicating that cortical maps do not require ongoing sensory input from the body.

    Target-specific membrane potential dynamics of neocortical projection neurons during goal-directed behavior

    Takayuki Yamashita, Carl CH Petersen
    A learning-induced, motor-related, projection-specific signal from S1 to S2 accompanies reward-based-learning of a goal-directed sensorimotor transformation of whisker sensation into licking motor output.

    Obtaining and maintaining cortical hand representation as evidenced from acquired and congenital handlessness

    Daan B Wesselink et al.
    fMRI results show that despite arm amputation, and varying degrees of phantom sensations, canonical hand representation in primary somatosensory cortex is largely maintained.

    Electrical activity controls area-specific expression of neuronal apoptosis in the mouse developing cerebral cortex

    Oriane Blanquie et al.
    In the developing mouse, the regional distribution of neuronal apoptosis in the primary motor cortex and primary somatosensory cortex is controlled by sensory-driven and intrinsic electrical activity patterns.

    A mutant with bilateral whisker to barrel inputs unveils somatosensory mapping rules in the cerebral cortex

    Nicolas Renier et al.
    The somatosensory cortex doesn't integrate mixed bilateral inputs, as partially uncrossing projections from the whiskers duplicates their representation by segregating lateralized inputs from each side of the head.

    Stage-dependent remodeling of projections to motor cortex in ALS mouse model revealed by a new variant retrograde-AAV9

    Barbara Commisso et al.
    The projections from discrete areas to motor cortex increase over disease course in motoneuron disease model with selective spatial and temporal patterns.

    NMDA receptors control development of somatosensory callosal axonal projections

    Jing Zhou et al.
    NMDAR receptors act in regulating axon guidance of somatosensory callosal projections in early postnatal life and the expression of EPHB2 receptors in target cells.

    Associative learning changes cross-modal representations in the gustatory cortex

    Roberto Vincis, Alfredo Fontanini
    Cross-modal stimuli are represented in the primary gustatory cortex according to their sensory identity, associability and predictive value.
