Cortical Area 7B

The goal of this study was to quantitatively characterize the response properties of somatosensory and multisensory neurons in cortical area 7B (or PF) of monkeys that were behaviorally trained to perform an appetitive tolerance-escape task. A total of 244 neurons that responded to somatosensory stimulation alone or to both somatosensory and visual stimulation (multisensory) were isolated and studied in the trigeminal region of cortical area 7B.
