This page covers biological details of component Somatosensory Association Cortex. Region is part of aHuman target integrated biological model.

  • Top-down path to region: Cerebral Cortex -> Parietal Lobe (NC.LOBE.PAR) -> Superior Parietal Lobule (NC.SPL) -> Somatosensory Association Cortex (NCP.NC.SPL.SA) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: cortex
  • Brain area: Neocortical Brain - Conscious Personality Area
  • Brodmann ID: 05
  • Role: cortex.generic
  • Function: Locating objects in space
  • Notes to function: PE, somatosensory, guiding movement by providing information about limb position
