Canal-neck interaction in vestibular neurons of the cat's cerebral cortex

  title={Canal-neck interaction in vestibular neurons of the cat's cerebral cortex},
  author={Th. Mergner and W. De Becker and Lueder Deecke},
  journal={Experimental Brain Research},
Interaction of semicircular canal and neck proprioceptive inputs was studied in the cerebral cortex of awake, intact cats. Neuronal responses were recorded extracellularly in the anterior suprasylvian gyrus of the left hemisphere. Stimulations consisted of horizontal rotations in the dark applied as sinusoids or position ramps. There were three stimulus conditions: (1) Pure canal stimulation; rotation of whole body. (2) Pure neck stimulation; rotation of trunk about stationary head. (3… CONTINUE READING
