Neuronal plasticity in the nigrostriatal system of the rat after unilateral removal of vibrissae.

The vibrissae of rats were shaved from one side of the face daily for 10 days. To see whether or not this treatment had an effect on crossed and uncrossed striatal afferent connections from the midbrain, the tract tracer horseradish peroxidase was applied to the caudate-putamen on day 11.
