Abstract

So far, we have largely been restricted to considerations of ascending sensory systems and the possible mechanisms contributing to perception of oral-facial stimuli. However, the sensory information coming into the brain has additional roles, roles that are all too often overlooked in studies of sensory mechanisms. We have already alluded to one of these other functions in previous chapters. A good deal of this sensory information does not reach consciousness but is involved, along with the muscle afferent inputs considered in the last chapter, in the initiation and regulation of reflex activity.
