1. Chronic unit and eye movement recording and microstimulation techniques were used to study the discharge properties of identified medial vestibulospinal tract (MVST) cells in the alert squirrel monkey. MVST cells were antidromically activated from the ventromedial funiculus at C1 and responded to orthodromic stimulation of the ipsilateral VIIIth nerve (Vi) at mono- or disynaptic latencies. Cell discharges were examined during imposed sinusoidal yaw rotation to activate horizontal… CONTINUE READING
