Developmental onset of functional activity in the wallaby whisker cortex in response to stimulation of the infraorbital nerve

Mark, R F; Flett, D; Marotte, Lauren; Waite, P M E


This study used the extrauterine development of a marsupial wallaby to investigate the onset of functional activity in the somatosensory pathway from the whiskers. In vivo recordings were made from the somatosensory cortex from postnatal day (P) 55 to P138, in response to electrical stimulation of the infraorbital nerve supplying the mystacial whiskers. Current source density analysis was used to localize the responses within the cortical depth. This was correlated with development of cortical...[Show more]
