We studied click-evoked potentials in the anterior horn of the spinal cord in 17 cats. A concentric needle electrode was inserted into the anterior horn of the spinal cord at levels C3-C6. Potentials evoked with 105 dB SPL clicks were recorded with a peak latency of 4.89-5.10 ms only at the C3 level. These responses were observed 45-60 dB SPL above the(More)
UNLABELLED The effects of click stimuli on the cervical muscle have been wildly studied, but no information is available on what reaction click stimuli elicit from the cervical cord. We studied the effects of click stimuli on the cervical cord in cats. PURPOSE To determine the response of the cervical cord to click stimuli in cats. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
A common pathway in the brainstem is thought to exist for the induction of visually guided saccades and rapid phase nystagmus (Ref. Ohki et al. 1988). This common pathway is often referred to as "the saccade generator" or "the burst generator." The presence of this pathway suggests that vestibular function can be examined by applying "visual stimuli" and(More)
We performed neuro-otological investigation of vertical oculomotor disorders in 35 patients with degenerative disease [progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and spino-cerebellar degeneration], and obtained the following results: 1) In the patients with PSP, in addition to vertical oculogyric disorder both saccade and pursuit eye movements were disturbed, and(More)
