Abstract

Following injury to peripheral sensory nerves residual functional defects and abnormal sensations are common consequences (Sunderland, 1978). An understanding of the mechanism(s) for these disturbances requires a detailed knowledge of how these nerve lesions affect the various components in the somatosensory system from receptor to cerebral cortex.
