The influence of housing in an enriched or impoverished environment and anti-ischemic treatment (piracetam) on the organization of the intact regions of the somatosensory cortical maps adjacent to a focal cortical injury were investigated in adult rats. Response properties of small clusters of neurons were recorded in the area of the primary somatosensory cortex (SI) devoted to the contralateral forepaw representation. Electrophysiological maps were elaborated on the basis of the sensory… CONTINUE READING
