1. Spontaneous discharges and evoked responses of Purkinje cells have been studied in the anterior lobe vermis of the cerebellum in cats anaesthetized with thiopentone sodium.2. Spontaneous activity was of two kinds: (a) single spikes which occurred in long trains and were discharged at average frequencies of 50-125/sec and (b) burst responses due to(More)

Ten days after artery occlusion the SEP was absent in the majority of rats tested and in the remainder the wave amplitude was reduced compared to the potential recorded(More)
