Abstract

The auditory brain-stem response (ABR) recorded from the vertex of the rat was analyzed before and after the brain was functionally isolated from the body trunk and maintained via cross-circulation. The ABR profile did not change for as long as 30 min after isolating the brain. The finding indicates that this experimental procedure is useful for studying the brain devoid of input from the trunk.
