Study Provides New Information on Mechanisms Involved in Touch Sensation and Self-Perception of Body in Space
A recent study gives new insights into the mechanisms involved in touch sensation and sheds light on the role proprioception—the brain’s “sixth sense” ability to sense the body’s position, equilibrium, and movement through space―plays on health and survival. The study, funded in part by NCCIH and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, was published in The New England Journal of Medicine.

Working jointly with the BD2K Centers-Coordination Center (BD2KCCC) and the NIH Office of Data Science, the BD2K Training Coordinating Center (TCC) is spearheading this virtual lecture series on the data science underlying modern biomedical research. Beginning in September 2016, the seminar series will consist of regularly scheduled weekly webinar presentations covering the basics of data management, representation, computation, statistical inference, data modeling, and other topics relevant to “big data” biomedicine. The seminar series will provide essential training suitable for individuals at all levels of the biomedical community. All video presentations from the seminar series will be streamed for live viewing, recorded, and posted online for future viewing and reference.
