- adj. Of or pertaining to somatotopy.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Predictions of the model that are immediately testable include (1) that somatotopic pinwheel maps of whisker direction exist in adult layer 2/3 barrel cortex for every large whisker on the rat's face, even peripheral whiskers; and (2) in the adult, neurons with similar directional tuning are interconnected by a network of horizontal connections, spanning distances of many whisker representations.
In particular, metabolic activity is enhanced in response to human motion, reflecting somatotopic organization, in the premotor and parietal areas
If classification accuracy remains significant when the voxels shown to have somatotopic properties in the group analysis are excluded, we have evidence that cross-modal multivariate pattern classification relies upon additional sources of information: patterns present in voxels previously not identified as containing significant information.
 provided evidence for a somatotopic mirror neuron system, portions of which overlap the ROIs considered here.
