Neurons in the ventrobasal (VB) thalamic nucleus of lightly anesthetized cats were studied in order to analyze their discharge properties in response to controlled mechanical stimuli. Properties of the vast majority of the neuronal population largely resemble those of peripheral sensitive mechanoreceptors in their response to the velocity and, to a more(More)
The organization of neurons in the cat ventrobasal complex (VB) which project to somatosensory cortex (SI) was investigated by the use of the retrograde transport of the enzyme horseradish peroxidase (HRP). Two histochemical procedures were used to visualize retrogradely transported HRP. Injections of HRP in electrophysiologically characterized points of SI(More)
