The organization of somatosensory neocortex was investigated in three species of marsupials, the northern quoll (Dasyurus hallucatus), the striped possum (Dactylopsila trivirgata), and the short-tailed opossum (Monodelphis domestica). In these species, multiunit microelectrode mapping techniques were used to determine the detailed organization of the primary somatosensory area (SI). In the striped possum and quoll, the topography of somatosensory regions rostral (R), and caudal (C) to SI were… CONTINUE READING
