The features of the intraspecies behavior of rats after ligation of the right, left, or both common carotid arteries were studied. It was shown that certain characteristics of behavior change differently following ligation of the right or left common carotid artery. The approach used may be utilized for the assessment of the severity of ischemic brain damage.
