The excitatory synaptic action of climbing fibres on the Purkinje cells of the cerebellum
1. A single climbing fibre makes an extraordinarily extensive synaptic contact with the dendrites of a Purkinje cell. Investigation of this synaptic mechanism in the cerebellum of the cat has beenExpand

Pharmacological studies on presynaptic inhibition
There is now a wealth of experimental evidence showing that in the spinal cord inhibition is brought about by two quite distinct synaptic mechanisms (Frank & Fuortes, 1957; Eccles, 1961a, b, 1962b;Expand

Central inhibitory action attributable to presynaptic depolarization produced by muscle afferent volleys
Frank & Fuortes (1957) and Frank (1959 and personal communication) have shown that muscle afferent volleys produce inhibition by diminishing the size of the monosynaptic excitatory post-synapticExpand
