Neuroplasticity of the Sensorimotor Cortex during Learning
Taken from  with permission. Shown are the results from control animals (Ctrl), short task performance on the RGR task (STP, 3–6 days), extended task performance (ETP, 23–105 days) and short task performance followed by two months (STP + 2 mts). The trained (tr) hemisphere and the untrained (untr) hemisphere are shown for each group. The -axis is the evoked field potential with LTP and LTD coded for by gray (LTP) or white (LTD). Note the change in the baseline and range after both the extended training as well as the short-task performance followed by two months.
