Description:
In his F. O. Schmitt Lecture (1980), Sokoloff provided this caption for the images: "Metabolic activation of "whisker barrel" in right sensory cortex of rat by stroking of single vibrissa on left side of face. The upper left panel includes the entire section of the rat brain at the level of the "whisker barrel." Successive panels illustrate the results of rescanning at higher resolution and/or zooming. The lower right panel includes a scan at highest resolution; each pixel is equivalent to 25 [micrometers]. The experiment was carried out by Hand and co-workers (1978) and the color-coded image processing was done by the method of Goochee and co-workers (1980)."
