Slide #1. The study of perception: A persistent (and worsening) audio-visual bias
Slide #2. Studying vision and hearing is easy!:
Slide #3. Studying somatosensation is difficult:
Slide #4. Classifying the senses: 'Special' versus 'general'
Slide #5. The role of the skin in somatosensation:
Slide #6. Unencapsulated cutaneous receptors: (free nerve endings)
Slide #7. Cutaneous receptor adaptation:
Slide #8. Cutaneous receptive fields:
Slide #9. Cutaneous receptor distribution: Hairless ('glabrous') vs. hairy skin
Slide #10. Proprioceptors:
Slide #11. Encapsulated cutaneous receptors:
Slide #12. : Interim Summary
Slide #13. The sensory neuron: (according to textbooks)
Slide #14. Sensory projections to the spinal cord: A bundle of different afferent fibres
Slide #15. Types of afferent nerves:
Slide #16. The spinal column: A segmented, layered neural processing circuit
Slide #17. Cutaneous receptors: A sub-classification
Slide #18. Dermatome overlap and variability: (beware the textbook!)
Slide #19. Somatosensory pathways:
Slide #20. Primary somatosensory cortex (SI): Gross anatomy
Slide #21. Primary somatosensory cortex (SI): A 'map' of the body
Slide #22. Primary somatosensory cortex (SI): Homunculi reflect sensitivity & function
Slide #23. Primary somatosensory cortex (SI): Hierarchical processing
Slide #24. Cortical somatosensory processing:
