An isolated mammalian brainstem-spinal cord preparation suitable for the investigation of descending control of motor activity.


An in vitro, hemisected brainstem-spinal cord preparation which allows bulbo-spinal interactions to be investigated, has been developed using 25-33 g golden hamsters. Spinal reflexes showing both monosynaptic and polysynaptic components were recorded from the lumbar ventral roots following stimulation of the corresponding dorsal roots. Trains of… (More)
