The cutaneous and conscious proprioceptive inputs are delivered to largely separate areas of primary somatosensory cortex (SI) in the mammalian brain. The integration of these inputs is fundamental to producing perception of the size and shape of the external object, as well as generating proper motor responses to external stimuli. Whereas such integration is considered to take place in SI for perception, little is known about how these inputs are disseminated relative to each other across the cerebral cortex for producing somatic motor responses to the external object. In this lecture, Dr. Kim will present his findings that provide a framework for the potential segregation of the cortico-cortical streams of cutaneous and proprioceptive information processing for somatic motor integration.
