The role of the motor cortex in the control of accuracy of locomotor movements in the cat.
1. The impulse activity of single neurones in the motor cortex (MC) was recorded extracellularly, using movable varnish‐insulated tungsten microelectrodes, in six adult, freely moving cats. NeuronalExpand

Activity of Different Classes of Neurons of the Motor Cortex during Locomotion
This study examines the activity of different classes of neurons of the motor cortex in the rabbit during two locomotion tasks: a simple (on a flat surface) and a complex (overstepping a series ofExpand

Sharp, local synchrony among putative feed-forward inhibitory interneurons of rabbit somatosensory cortex.
Many suspected inhibitory interneurons (SINs) of primary somatosensory cortex (S1) receive a potent monosynaptic thalamic input (thalamocortical SINs, SINstc). It has been proposed that nearly allExpand

Control of locomotion in marine mollusc Clione limacina I. Efferent activity during actual and fictitious swimming
Summary1.The marine mollusc Clione limacina swims by making rhythmic movements (with a frequency of 1–5 Hz) of its two wings. Filming demonstrated that the wings perform oscillatory movements in theExpand

Postural control in the rabbit maintaining balance on the tilting platform.
A deviation from the dorsal-side-up body posture in quadrupeds activates the mechanisms for postural corrections. Operation of these mechanisms was studied in the rabbit maintaining balance on aExpand

Control of locomotion in marine mollusc Clione limacina IV. Role of type 12 interneurons
Summary1. Type 12 interneurons in pedal ganglia of Clione limacina exerted a strong influence upon the locomotor generator during “intense” swimming. These neurons generated “plateau” potentials,Expand

Control of locomotion in marine mollusc Clione limacina II. Rhythmic neurons of pedal ganglia
Summary1.Activity from neurons in isolated pedal ganglia of Clione limacina was recorded intracellularly during generation of rhythmic swimming. To map the distribution of cells in a ganglion, one ofExpand

Neural bases of postural control.
The body posture during standing and walking is maintained due to the activity of a closed-loop control system. In the review, we consider different aspects of postural control: its functionalExpand

Activity of Different Classes of Neurons of the Motor Cortex during Postural Corrections
The dorsal side-up body orientation in quadrupeds is maintained by a postural system that is driven by sensory feedback signals. The spinal cord, brainstem, and cerebellum play essential roles inExpand

Spinal and supraspinal postural networks
Different species maintain a particular body orientation in space (upright in humans, dorsal-side-up in quadrupeds, fish and lamprey) due to the activity of a closed-loop postural control system. WeExpand
