1. In normal kittens and cats, cells in a region of primary somatosensory cortex (SI) responded exclusively to input from the contralateral front paw; we called this area paw cortex (PC). A neighboring region of SI responded to input from the contralateral forearm above the wrist; we called this area forearm cortex (FC). The centers of PC and FC were about 4 mm apart. 2. In kittens several weeks after transection of the nerves to the front paw, the following changes were observed in PC: a) 52… CONTINUE READING
