Many previous studies revealed that electrical stimulation of brainstem inhibits activities of spinal dorsal horn cells, and that the inhibitory fibers, especially raphe-spinal system, descend in the dorsolateral funiculus (DLF) of the spinal cord. But the effect of such stimulation upon thalamic neurons are still unknown. The author tried to reveal how the… CONTINUE READING
