The activity of single neurons in the mesencephalic locomotor region (MLR) was recorded extracellularly in cats during spontaneous locomotion on a treadmill. Although stimulation of the MLR is required to induce locomotion on a treadmill after a precollicular-postmamillary brain stem transection in the cat, spontaneous locomotion may occur after a precollicular-premamillary transection. The activity of flexor and extensor muscles of each limb also was recorded by EMG. Nearly 50% of the MLR… CONTINUE READING
