When ejected microelectrophoretically near spinal interneurones of cats anaesthetised with pentobarbitone and under conditions where postsynaptic excitability was maintained artificially at a constant level, (−), but not (+), -baclofen selectively reduced monosynaptic excitation by impulses in low threshold muscle (Ia and Ib) and cutaneous (Aα) afferents.(More)
The unmyelinated terminal regions of extensor muscle Ia afferent fibres were stimulated electrically near lumbar motoneurones in anaesthetised cats using 300 μs pulses of less than 1 μA passed through the central NaCl barrel of seven barrel micropipettes. Such terminations were identified by anodal blocking factors of less than four and the latency of the(More)
