  • 1. The region of the ventro-basal complex (VB) of the thalamus responding to movements of the whiskers has been mapped electrophysiologically in rats under either urethane or barbiturate anaesthesia.2. Whisker responses were found in the dorso-medial part of VB throughout its rostro-caudal extent; they occupied one third to one half of the total VB region.3. Most cells responded to movements of only one whisker and the responses were somatotopically organized. The different horizontal lines of… CONTINUE READING
