Various types of neuropathology can be simulated experimentally by creating surgical lesions in certain areas of the brain. While the motor and sensory deficits that result are related to the specific area of the brain that has been damaged, the ablation of portions of the motor cortex in dogs will not always produce obvious motor deficiencies. In the dog and other vertebrates, other regions of the brain also contribute to motor performance and may compensate for the cortical damage.
