The behavioral, anatomical, and electrophysiological effects of posterior parietal cortex lesions (Krieg's area 7) were compared in rats with removals at 1, 5, or 10 days of age or in adulthood. Behaviorally, the animals were administered several tests including grooming, beam walking, swimming, the Morris water task and a radial arm maze. Lesions at 10 days of age permitted behavioral sparing on most behavioral tasks, whereas lesions at 1 or 5 days of age allowed little sparing and even… CONTINUE READING
