Summary of "Somatosensation: The Cellular and Physical Basis of Tactile Experience."

A fundamental question in sensory neuroscience is how perceptual experience arises from the cellular properties of sensory neurons. A new, tour de force study has dissected out the functional properties of identified mechanosensory nerve endings that innervate whisker follicles.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The ability to foresee what is likely to happen on the basis of past experience. It is largely a frontal lobe function.

Sensation of making physical contact with objects, animate or inanimate. Tactile stimuli are detected by MECHANORECEPTORS in the skin and mucous membranes.

Intravenous anesthetics that induce a state of sedation, immobility, amnesia, and marked analgesia. Subjects may experience a strong feeling of dissociation from the environment. The condition produced is similar to NEUROLEPTANALGESIA, but is brought about by the administration of a single drug. (From Gilman et al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed)

A person's concept of self as being male and masculine or female and feminine, or ambivalent, based in part on physical characteristics, parental responses, and psychological and social pressures. It is the internal experience of gender role.

Hearing loss without a physical basis. Often observed in patients with psychological or behavioral disorders.
