Coding and use of tactile signals from the fingertips in object manipulation tasks
2009 (English)In: Nature Reviews Neuroscience, ISSN 1471-0048, E-ISSN 1471-003X, Vol. 10, no 5, 345-359 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
During object manipulation tasks, the brain selects and implements action-phase controllers that use sensory predictions and afferent signals to tailor motor output to the physical properties of the objects involved. Analysis of signals in tactile afferent neurons and central processes in humans reveals how contact events are encoded and used to monitor and update task performance.
