Behavioral and neurochemical changes accompanying unilateral removal of vibrissae were investigated in the rat. Rats were tested either 4 hours or 10 days after hemivibrissotomy. A systemic injection of apomorphine (0.5 mg/kg) induced turning behavior towards the intact vibrissae side in rats tested 4 hours after hemivibrissotomy. Compared to these animals, apomorphine induced more turning towards the side of vibrissae removal and less turning towards the intact side in animals tested 10 days… CONTINUE READING
