ACCORDING to the doctrine that the nervous system is organized as a series of levels, that portion of the brain stem lying immediately above the spinal cord, and described as bulbar, has traditionally been regarded as a level contributing excitatory influences to motor outflows. The basis for this view is the observation, f&t made by Sherrington (ll), that decerebration leaving only the bulbar part of the brain connected with the cord, is followed by a state of over-activity or rigidity of the… Expand
