Brain stem reticular formation and activation of the EEG.
Impulses in the pyramidal tract
It is found that in the anaesthetized animal there is usually a continued pyramidal discharge which is infra-liminal for the motor nerve cells of the spinal cord, that the cerebral neurones can be made to discharge at extremely high frequencies with certain forms of stimulation, and that such discharges are to be found whenever there is a widespread excitation of epileptiform type.
