Intracortical microstimulation of the frontal cortex evokes movements in the contralateral limbs, paws, and digits of placental mammals including the laboratory rat. The topographic representation of movement in the rat consists of a rostral forelimb area (RFA), a caudal forelimb area (CFA), and a hind limb area (HLA). The size of these representations can vary between individual animals and the proportional representation of the body parts within regions can also change as a function of… CONTINUE READING
