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)
