Summary

By recording primary responses, 2 zones of representation of the afferent fibers of the pelvic and pudendal nerves were found in the cortex of each cerebral hemisphere in dogs. The zones are bilateral, with their localization in fields I and II of the general somatic sensation, within the area of representation of the hind limb. The zones of representation of the pelvic and pudendal nerves overlap each other. However, each nerve has its own focus of maximal activity (FMA) which does not coincide with the FMA of another nerve.

In dogs, zone I of the cortical representation of the nerves under study is located on the anterior part of the presplenial gyrus and zone II on the medial portion of the anterior ectosylvian gyrus.
