Distribution of tactile learning and its neural basis.


The brain's sensory processing systems are modified during perceptual learning. To learn more about the spatial organization of learning-related modifications, we trained rats to utilize the sensory signal from a single intact whisker to carry out a behavioral task. Once a rat had mastered the task, we clipped its "trained" whisker and attached a… (More)
