The distribution of two functionally distinct cell types, presumably related to slowly and rapidly adapting mechanoreceptors in the skin, was explored within the representation of the glabrous hand in area 3b of the somatosensory cortex of monkeys. The two cell classes lie in relatively segregated alternating anteroposterior bands within the middle layers of the cortex.
