Synchronised activity of the callosal cells was studied in the rat motor cortex. Cross-correlation analysis revealed narrow symmetrical peaks (less than 20 ms) and intermediate ones (30-80 ms). Common neuron(s) located in one hemisphere reciprocally connected callosal cells can play the role of a "common input" that synchronises discharges of the cells in both hemispheres. The narrow and intermediate peaks seem to be mediated by mono- and polysynaptic connections, resp.
