  • Early postnatal lesions of the primary somatosensory cortex alter the vibrissa‐related cytochrome oxidase (CO) pattern in nucleus principlis (PrV) of the rat's trigeminal (V) brainstem complex (Erzurumlu and Ebner, '88: Dev. Brain Res. 44:302–308). At present, the reason for this change is not clear. It may be that the corticotrigeminal projection is necessary for the maintenance of vibrissa‐related patterns in PrV. However, it is also possible that the loss of the normal pattern of CO activity… CONTINUE READING
