Substantially better recovery of function also is seen, paradoxically, in monkeys with bilateral pyramidal lesions (Tower, 1940; Lawrence and Kuypers, 1968a). Ambulation improves 29 toward normal, and the monkey also regains the ability to use both the upper and lower extremities to climb deftly, grasping with both the hands and the feet. Use of the upper extremities to reach out to objects also regains more accuracy after bilateral than after unilateral pyramidotomy. The hands can be used effectively to grasp objects, although relatively independent finger movements remain impaired.
