Concept Info

NAME

Whisker system

DESCRIPTION

The whisker system is a sensorimotor system used by animals such as rodents to collect environmental information. 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.
