Reduced center time in open field testing of a rat with a blast-induced lesion in the motor cortex. Shown is an H&E-stained section (A) from a 3×−chronic exposure rat. An arrow points to a lesion in the motor cortex (compare to the unaffected contralateral side). Panel B shows center time in an open field test of this animal (rat 595) compared to blast-exposed and control groups (error bars indicate S.E.M.). Methods and original pooled group data were described in Elder et al.
. Scale bar: 200 μm.
