Manganese-enhanced MRI (MEMRI) has been described as a powerful tool to depict the architecture of neuronal circuits. The aim of the present study was to optimize the experimental conditions of MEMRI that permits the study of insult-induced alterations of the somatosensory pathway in a longitudinal way, and to provide functional information on rat corticothalamic connectivity or disturbances thereof. A guidance screw was implanted in the skull of the rats, over the forelimb representation area… CONTINUE READING
