In nembutalized cats intracellular potentials were recorded from hypoglossal motoneurons innervating either protruder or retractor muscles of the tonge (protruder and retractor motoneurons: P-Mns and R-Mns). Responses to stimulation of the hypoglossal nerve were explored and found to consist of an antidromic spike followed by an afterhyperpolarization (AHP)(More)
The myotopical arrangement of masticatory motoneurons was examined in the guinea pig by the horseradish peroxidase method. The trigeminal motor nucleus was composed of dorsolateral and ventromedial divisions; the former was seen in the whole rostrocaudal extent of the nucleus, while the latter was present at levels of the caudal two thirds of the nucleus.(More)
The properties of excitatory and inhibitory postsynaptic potentials (EPSPs and IPSPs) produced in cat hypoglossal motoneurons by inferior alveolar nerve stimulation were studied. The percentage magnitude of a short- and a long-lasting component in inferior alveolar-induced IPSPs was measured by application of double shocks separated by 80- to 90-ms(More)
