Three hundred and thirty-four neurones located in the magnocellular division of red nucleus (r.n.m.) were studied in three alert macaque monkeys. These cells had low discharge rates at rest and produced high frequency bursts during movement. Single cells were selectively active for movement of one body part, and a motor somatotopy was evident. From dorsal(More)
Correlation and regression analyses were performed on thirty-three of the magnocellular red nucleus cells described in the previous paper. We sought to test for reliable relations between the parameters of individual tracking movements and corresponding bursts of neural discharge. High correlations were found between the following burst and movement(More)
In a series of combined electrophysiological and peroxidase histochemical studies, we have established that first-order hepatic and gustatory afferents project to separate regions of the solitary nucleus (NST) and do not converge upon neurons within this structure. Additionally, we have found that hepatic vagal afferent fibers travel in the left cervical(More)
Neural activity of the red nucleus was studied in monkeys trained to operate devices requiring shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, or finger movements. Single cell activity was more closely related to movements of the hand and fingers than to movements of the other joints. Discharge consistently preceded movements by a constant time interval; duration of(More)
