Effect of donor cerebrospinal fluid on the recovery of motor function in rats after partial decortication

  • I. B. Ptitsyna

The ability of donor cerebrospinal fluid from different sources the recover motor functions in partially decorticated rats is estimated. Cerebrospinal fluid from frogs, which have no cortex, and cerebrospinal fluid from donor rats obtained immediately or long after decortication hampers normal recovery of motor function in the recipient rats, while cerebrospinal fluid from intact adult or neonatal rats slightly decreases behavioral manifestations of the motor cortex damage in the recipients.
