    As the title suggests.

    Thank you.

    When you google Somatic Sensory, Google comes back with "Did you mean: somatosensory"

    They appear to be pretty similar in definition. Have you seen them used differently?

    I have seen "somatosensory" used in a different text from "somatic sensory", so they might be the same.

    Generally, I don't trust Google's suggestions so I would like to know the difference (if there is one) for sure.
