In normal adult rats, the mystacial vibrissae and the common fur of the snout project at different loci on the SI cortex. The surface area of the normal fur projection is 0.8 mm2, whereas the vibrissa field amounts to 3-4 mm2. In rats dewhiskered since birth, the vibrissa area can still be identified through the projections from ipsilateral vibrissae(More)
We have tested the influence of face-mask style and volume on rhinomanometric measurements. Using an artificial head-and-piston pump to standardize the test conditions, four types of face masks (volumes varying from 120 to 200 ml) have been tested in a series of 20 measurements per mask. No statistical difference could be found between the series using a(More)
