Ipsilaterally projecting spinal excitatory interneurons (EINs) generate the hemisegmental rhythmic locomotor activity in lamprey, while the commissural interneurons ensure proper left-right alternation. 5-HT is a potent modulator of the locomotor rhythm and is endogenously released from the spinal cord during fictive locomotion. The effect of 5-HT was investigated for three segmental premotor interneuron types: EINs, commissural excitatory and commissural inhibitory interneurons. All three… CONTINUE READING
