How can the primates remember the tactile stimuli?
“And when I touch you
I feel happy inside
It’s such a feelin’ that my love” -from The Beatles’ I want to hold your hand
We are investigating how the primates encode the values of tactile stimuli in their brain circuits.
- Investigating how the primates recognize the tactile stimuli
- Studying the brain circuit mechanisms to understand the tactile memory
- Examining the primate brain circuits encoding the tactile memory
- fMRI and single-unit recording studies to reveal the tactile memory-based decision-making mechanisms
