Magnetic cortical responses evoked by visual linear forward acceleration

Suetaka NishiikeTakeshi Kubo


Cortical site processing the information of whole body linear acceleration has not yet been identified. In this study, neuromagnetic responses to visually induced linear forward acceleration were recorded in six healthy-right-handed adult subjects using a 122-channel whole cortex neuromagnetometer. Significant activation was estimated in the cortex around the posterior insula, which belongs to the vestibular cortex. Hence, it is suggested that the vestibular cortex not only receives vestibular input from the peripheral vestibular apparatus, but also processes the vestibular sensation from multi-modal information.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
