1. Extracellular recordings were made from caudate nucleus neurones in decerebrate cats using five-barrel micropipette electrodes.2. Electrical stimulation of the substantia nigra caused spike rate depressions in 121 of 260 caudate neurones as evidenced by changes in the post-stimulus histograms of their firing patterns. Spike rate facilitation occurred with forty-two caudate units.3. Neurones depressed by nigral stimuli were consistently depressed by micro-iontophoretic dopamine.4. Alpha… CONTINUE READING
