Moreover, the somatosensory system may have impairments' in patients with PD, through reduced sensitivity in the extremities (21).
"Our results provide in vivo evidence of morphologic changes in the primary somatosensory system, which could be responsible for the sensory functional symptoms of RLS," the authors write.
Moreover, we evaluated the spatial and temporal somatosensory integration recording the somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) evoked by a dual nerve input to investigate the contribution of lateral inhibition in the somatosensory system. Indeed, previously, Tinazzi and coworkers proposed the MU/(M + U) * 100 as a marker of lateral surround inhibition evoked by a dual input in the somatosensory system [5].
Based on the history, there are two requirements: 1) a pain distribution consistent with the principles of topographic diagnosis in neurology, i.e., it must correspond to a peripheral innervation territory (nerves, fascicles, roots) or to the topographic representation of a body part in the central nervous system; 2) clinical suspicion of a relevant lesion or disease that affects the peripheral or central somatosensory system and with a temporal link between the lesion or disease causing the pain.

Neurophysiological evidence of neuroplasticity at multiple levels of the somatosensory system in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome.
This study is proposing to use RSS at 40Hz to stimulate the brain through the somatosensory system, hypothesizing that 40 Hz sound stimulation will drive neural rhythmic oscillatory coherence at the 40Hz level and, consequently, contribute to improved cognition in people with Alzheimer 's disease.
It must also remember where it was and when it sampled, and what action in chose at the previous sample, and it must have confirmation by proprioception from the somatosensory system that the intended action was actually taken, in order to determine what to do in the next cycle.
Somatosensory system is an arising interactive video game and multimedia technology.
On the other hand, neuropathic pain arises as a direct consequence of a lesion or disease affecting the somatosensory system without any noxious stimuli.
Components involving control include the motor system providing musculoskeletal synergistic response, somatosensory system obtaining visual, vestibular and proprioceptive information and central nervous integrating system for converting sensory inputs into muscle coordination and adaptation.
"We found that birth regulates neuronal circuit formation not only in the somatosensory system but also in the visual system.

Research has shown that certain physical activities improve proprioception (an element of the somatosensory system) in particular joints.
The rest of the book contains sections on forebrain structure, the evolution of function and maps in the somatosensory system, and some causes and consequences of aspects of brain evolution.
