THE EXPERIMENTS of Muller (18) and others demonstrated that stimulation of the central end of a severed ventral spinal root does not result in the production of muscular movements; that is to say, an antidromic volley of impulses in a group of motor axons does not result in the discharge of other motoneurons. However, such antidromic volleys are not without effect on the spinal cord. It is well known that they condition reflex discharges of the attached motoneurons (9, 10, 13). Three additional… CONTINUE READING
