Vestibular influences on outflow from the spinal cord are largely mediated via spinal interneurons, although few studies have recorded interneuronal activity during labyrinthine stimulation. The present study determined the responses of upper thoracic interneurons of decerebrate cats to electrical stimulation of the vestibular nerve or natural stimulation(More)
The colocalization of neurotensin- and cholecystokinin-like immunoreactivities was demonstrated in neurons of the ventral mesencephalon of the rat by using a double-labeling indirect immunofluorescence procedure for the simultaneous detection of two antigens in the same tissue section. Greater than 90% of the neurotensin-positive perikarya distributed(More)
Cauda equina syndrome refers to dysfunction of the cauda equina, the collection of ventral and dorsal lumbar, sacral and coccygeal nerve roots that surround the filum terminale. This most commonly occurs as a result of compression by a herniated lumbosacral disc. However, the syndrome may also complicate metastatic cancer or a primary neoplasm within or(More)
