Cortical organization was examined in five shrew species. In three species, Blarina brevicauda, Cryptotis parva, and Sorex palustris, microelectrode recordings were made in cortex to determine the organization of sensory areas. Cortical recordings were then related to flattened sections of cortex processed for cytochrome oxidase or myelin to reveal(More)
Our initial studies suggested that the 5-HT2/1C agonist (+/-)-1-(2,5-dimethoxy-4-iodophenyl-2-aminopropane [(+/-)-DOI] produces both the head-twitch response (HTR) and the ear-scratch response (ESR) in mice via stimulation of 5-HT2 receptors. However, challenge studies revealed that these behaviors are produced via two different receptors (possibly 5-HT2(More)
Studies of morphological integration can provide insight into developmental patterns, even in extinct taxa known only from skeletal remains, thus making them an important tool for studies of evolutionary development. However, interpreting patterns of integration and assessing their significance for organismal evolution requires detailed understanding of the(More)
