Somatosensory

somatosensory mapThis part of the nervous system relays information to the brain regarding temperature, body position & movement, tactile pressure, taste, smell, environmental chemicals, pain and damage to tissues. Concussions and whiplash can demonstrate damage to the high concentration of proprioceptors (nerves) in the neck which can create a disturbance in the integration of information that is being relayed to the brain and may lead to balance issues as an example.
