Structural MRI scans of exemplary animals and lesion reconstruction. A and B Coronal slice of right and left sham lesion in a control animal without any damage to the cortex. C and D Coronal slice of an animal of the RL group with right (1st lesion) and left (2nd lesion) surgery and thermo-coagulation of the auditory cortices; broken line boxes indicate magnified regions shown below: E and F Magnified scans from the animal shown above. Red encircled area depicts the lesion boundaries in this specific coronal slice. G and H Reconstruction of the MRI scanned part of the brain of the lesioned animal shown above. The unhinged volume represents the complete lesion as used for further analysis.
