This project comprises three sets of physiological studies - testing eight specific
hypotheses - that will contribute new knowledge on proprioception and motor control in a
genetic disorder that affects specific components of the sensory nervous system.
I: To investigate the neurophysiological basis for disturbed motor control in Hereditary
sensory and autonomic neuropathy (HSAN) III II: To investigate the effects of enhancing
cutaneous feedback on motor control in HSAN III III: To investigate the cortical
representation of proprioceptive inputs in HSAN III
