We describe a new method to induce focal brain damage targeting the motor cortex to study damage to the descending motor tracts in the non-human primate. Stereotaxic injection of malonate into the primary motor cortex produced a focal lesion in middle-aged marmosets (Callithrix jacchus). Assessment of sensorimotor function using a neurological scale and testing of forelimb dexterity and strength lasted a minimum of 12  weeks. Lesion evolution was followed by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at 24 h, 1 week, 4 and 12 weeks post-injury and before sacrifice for immunohistochemistry. Our model produced consistent les...
