The anatomical basis for the specificity of the monosynaptic stretch reflex has been studied in the brachial spinal cord of bullfrogs. Sensory axons from the triceps brachii muscle innervate the corresponding triceps motoneurons but do not innervate two types of unrelated motoneurons (subscapularis and pectoralis) (Lichtman, J.W., and E. Frank (1984) J. Neurosci. 4: 1745-1753). Retrograde labeling of these three types of motoneurons with horseradish peroxidase (HRP) demonstrated that their cell… CONTINUE READING
