Little evidence presently exists on the development and aging of synaptic contacts and their relationship to behavior, particularly in nonvisual brain areas. To investigate this interrelationship, rats at a series of developmental ages [postnatal day 1 (P1) to P90] were initially examined on a battery of motor tasks. The battery, ranging from simple reflexive tests to tests of complex locomotor capacities, consisted of tactile-induced forelimb placing, chin-induced placing, body righting… CONTINUE READING
