Transfer of Tactile Learning from Trained to Untrained Body Parts Supported by Cortical Coactivation in Primary Somatosensory Cortex

Frank, Sebastian M. ; Otto, Alexandra ; Volberg, Gregor ; Tse, Peter U. ; Watanabe, Takeo ; Greenlee, Mark W.


A pioneering study by Volkmann (1858) revealed that training on a tactile discrimination task improved task performance, indicative of tactile learning, and that such tactile learning transferred from trained to untrained body parts. However, the neural mechanisms underlying tactile learning and transfer of tactile learning have remained unclear. We trained groups of human subjects (female and ...
