Nine fetal kittens sustained removal of the left frontal cortex during the last third of gestation (E 43-55) and were compared to animals sustaining a similar lesion postnatally (P 8-14) as well as to littermate controls. Starting after 6 months of age the animals received a comprehensive battery of movement, posture and sensorimotor tests. The prenatal-lesioned cats performed worse in practically all 15 tests applied (significantly in 13 of them) compared to the neonatal-lesioned cats… CONTINUE READING
