    Neural basis of somatosensory target detection independent of uncertainty, relevance, and reports

    Pia Schröder et al.
    Neural correlates of somatosensory target detection are restricted to secondary somatosensory cortex, whereas activity in insular, cingulate, and motor regions reflects stimulus uncertainty and overt reports.

    Somatosensory neurons integrate the geometry of skin deformation and mechanotransduction channels to shape touch sensing

    Alessandro Sanzeni et al.
    Nonlinear elasticity of skin tissues and somatosensory neural responses are combined to predict and test C. elegans processing of touch stimuli and modifications due to changes in the body mechanics.

    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.

    Stereotyped transcriptomic transformation of somatosensory neurons in response to injury

    Minh Q Nguyen et al.
    Peripheral injury induces a programmed but reversible transformation of gene expression in somatosensory neurons providing a mechanism to regulate sensory input during wound healing.

    Low-noise encoding of active touch by layer 4 in the somatosensory cortex

    Samuel Andrew Hires et al.
    Touch information is represented with minimal noise in the somatosensory cortex during tactile exploration.

    Distributed task-specific processing of somatosensory feedback for voluntary motor control

    Mohsen Omrani et al.
    Somatosensory feedback is transmitted to many sensory and motor cortical regions within 25 milliseconds and ongoing behavioural tasks alter the spatiotemporal pattern of this perturbation-related activity, supporting rapid motor responses to attain behavioural goals.

    Semi-intact ex vivo approach to investigate spinal somatosensory circuits

    Junichi Hachisuka et al.
    A new spinal somatosensory preparation is described which enables fine control of sensory input and the ability to manipulate spinal interneurons while recording from spinal projection neurons.

    The causal role of the somatosensory cortex in prosocial behaviour

    Selene Gallo et al.
    A combination of human imaging and brain stimulation techniques show that the somatosensory cortex is essential to prosocial decision making, by transforming observed pain in accurate perception of others' distress.

    Transcriptional profiling at whole population and single cell levels reveals somatosensory neuron molecular diversity

    Isaac M Chiu et al.
    Molecular analysis paints a detailed picture of the distinctiveness and complexities of peripheral somatosensory neurons.
