Scientists have discovered that human skin is embedded with a “mini computer”

September 3, the majority of people think that our wisdom comes from the brain, but Swedish researchers have found that extends to our fingertips neurons and cortical neurons have the same operation mode.

Over the years the basic knowledge we accepted are: the body’s entire nervous system like a data collection network with a variety of sensors, the various information back to the brain, and then unified treatment. But if the latest research is true, maybe it will overthrow this theory.

The paper, co-authored by Andrew Prussian Brzezinski (J AndrewPruszynski) and Roland Jonathan (Roland SJohansson), magazine “Nature Neuroscience” is also on August 31 their abstracts published online: “We believe that peripheral neurons tactile processing path, and peripheral neurons as visual processing path, can engage usually consists of cortical neurons responsible for feature extraction calculation. “

In other words: “Our tactile experience prior to the brain for further processing, seems to have been carried out by neurons in the skin over the process.”

The study also describes the skin of neurons, the ability to “geometry” Brzezinski called Prussian touch the object being passed. He said: “Our research found two a tactile neurons sensitive skin can not only provide fingertip touch objects time and intensity information, but also provide information on the shape of the object is triggered.”

The sensitivity of this system depends on the sensitivity of a neuron located in the area on the skin.

The study is expected to change the current way to repair nerve damage, because the current theoretical assumptions are: the cerebral cortex responsible for all the work of the entire nervous system.

“If you want to recover by regenerating peripheral nerves in patients with impaired tactile nerve function, it can not be regenerated as now only consider the number of neurons, but also according to our findings, precisely control how these regenerating neurons, because this may They can decide what information will be sent to the brain. “Prussian Brzezinski said.
