Post natal changes in somaesthetic evoked potentials in the albino rat.
THE evoked potential is a useful tool in the study of brain development1–3 although the underlying mechanism has not been explained conclusively. The post-natal changes in the evoked potential should throw some more light on this subject, and to my knowledge there has not so far been a study of the somaesthetic evoked responses on rats younger than 6 days. My results differ from those of Schapiro et al. 2 where the ages correspond.
