The purpose of this study was to examine the anatomical and behavioural sequelae in the normal brain associated with tactile stimulation treatment during development. Using a split litter design, male and female rats were randomly assigned to either the tactile stimulation group (tactile stimulation for 15 min, three times/day, from postnatal day 3 to 21), or the no-tactile stimulation group. In adulthood, the rats were tested on the Whishaw tray reaching task, activity box, novel object… CONTINUE READING
