    We describe a model of visual processing in which feedback connections from a higher- to a lower order visual cortical area carry predictions of lower-level neural activities, whereas the feedforward connections carry the residual errors between the predictions and the actual lower-level...

  • somesthetic area.  // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary;2005, p2027 

    A definition of the term "somesthetic area" is presented. It refers to the region in the parietal lobe of the cerebral cortex. The terminations of the axons of general sensory conduction pathways lie in this region. This region is responsible for feeling and interpreting the cutaneous senses and...

    A series of recordings in cat visual cortex suggest that synchronous activity in neuronal cell ensembles serves to bind the different perceptual qualities belonging to one object. We provide evidence that similar mechanisms seem also to be observable in human subjects for the representation of...

    We report an interesting case of delayed frontal abscess caused by a penetrating nonmissile foreign body, a bamboo stick in a 1.5-year-old male child. A parietal craniotomy was performed, and the brain abscess was resected along with the foreign body without any damage to the surrounding brain...
