Abstract

The object of this investigation was to answer the following questions: (1) Which layers of the cortex are involved in all transfers regardless of the method of destruction?; (2) Is there any advantage in producing a destruction which leaves the upper layers of the cortex intact?; (3) Which method of destruction allows more control of size of destruction?; (4) Does electrical stimulation contribute to localizing the region controlling the function of handedness?; (5) Do ambidextrous rats transfer with significantly smaller destructions than single handed rats?; (6) Are there significant differences between methods with respect to size or effect of destruction or with respect to proportion of transfers for any one method?; (7) What are the inter-correlations between size, depth and effect of destruction?
