Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

The main objective of the study is to explore and map brain areas involved in processing and perception in patients suffering from neurological pathologies and condition. The investigators hypothesize for example, that a change (compare to healthy subjects) in the perceptual maps and body representation could be detected and characterize in patients suffering from impairments of peripheral nerve conduction.
