Oral cavity representation at the frontal operculum of macaque monkeys.

Abstract

Receptive properties of neurons at areas 3 and 1-2, and the gustatory area (area G) in the frontal operculum (Fop) and the neighboring areas were investigated in the cerebral cortex of Macaca irus and Macaca fuscata by applying mechanical and taste stimulation to the oral cavity and lips.
