Concept Info

NAME

Somatosensory system

DESCRIPTION

The somatosensory system consists of the peripheral receptors and neural pathways through which the nervous system detects and processes information about touch (mechanoception), pain (nociception), temperature (thermoception) and the position and movement of parts of the body (proprioception).

36 skos:definition The barrel cortex consists of the regions of the primary somatosensory cortex that receive input from the whiskers via the thalamus. Barrel cortex is organized into cylindrical columns of neurons whose topographical arrangement mirrors that of the whisker follicles. Studying the barrel cortex has provided insight into cortical processing and plasticity.

154 skos:definition The thalamus is a brain area that is located between the cerebral cortex and midbrain, and surrounds the third ventricle. The thalamus has an important role in mediating sensory information to cortical areas and is part of the olfactory and visual system. It is also implicated in regulating sleep and wakefulness.

As part of the somatosensory system, touch receptors therefore transmit information regarding tactile stimuli to the central nervous system.

Nerve endings in the follicle convert whisker movement into action potentials and information is transmitted to the somatosensory cortex. Moving the whiskers back and forth – whisking – can provide additional information about objects encountered.
