Unanesthetized Long-Evans (pigmented) rats were subjected to 2.0 G centripetal acceleration for 90 min. Immunohistochemical analysis, using a polyclonal antibody for Fos, revealed a distinct pattern of neuronal activation in the off-axis animals in the dorsomedial cell column (DMCC) of the inferior olivary nucleus. These results are consistent with previous… CONTINUE READING
