The primary aim of this study was to clarify the role of supraspinal, propriospinal, and primary sensory afferents in motoneuron (MN) development in the lateral motor column (LMC) of the lumbar spinal cord of the chick embryo. For this purpose three types of operations were carried out on embryonic day (E) 2. (1) The spinal cord was transected at the cervical (C-gap) or at the thoracic (T-gap) level so as to eliminate supraspinal and/or propriospinal inputs to the lumbar cord. (2) The entire… CONTINUE READING
