Abstract

Combined psychophysical and neurophysiological experiments have revealed some of the neural codes associated with perception and processing of tactile information. Recently, intracortical microstimulation was used to demonstrate a causal link between primary cortical activity and perception. Evidence for a subsequent link, between a sensory decision process and its expression as a movement, has been found in motor areas.
