Abstract

The somatotopic organization of the second somatosensory cortical area (SII) and receptive fields of multineuron responses to cutaneous stimulation were studied in cats 6-16 months after lesions of the forelimb representation in the primary somatosensory area (SI) at 4 days, 4 weeks of age or in adults. No change was detected in SII. The results contrast with findings of alterations in SII of macaque monkeys following similar ablations of SI.
