With the multiple fluorescent retrograde tracer technique, the collateralization in the spinal cord of descending supraspinal pathways was studied in a lizard, Varanus exanthematicus. Fast Blue (FB) gels were implanted unilaterally in the spinal gray matter of the cervical enlargement and Nuclear Yellow (NY) gels were implanted ipsilaterally in two series of experiments in all spinal funiculi of the lumbar enlargement or in midthoracic spinal segments, respectively. All brainstem nuclei known… CONTINUE READING
