Neuronal activity of n. AV (n = 75) and n. AD (n = 55) of the thalamus was recorded extracellularly in unanaesthetized chronic rabbits after complete transection of the mammillo -thalamic tract (MTT). Elimination of this powerful afferent system produced a surprisingly small effect upon spontaneous and evoked neuronal activity. All types of responses were preserved in both nuclei, though some increase of multimodal diffuse tonic responses and decrease of more specialized phasic and complex on… CONTINUE READING
