Electrical stimulation of the auditory cortex (AC) was used as a conditioned stimulus (CS) in the rabbit conditioned eyeblink preparation to trace the functional anatomical connections between the AC and the circuitry underlying this conditioned response. Conditioning was shown to be dependent on the cerebellar interpositus nucleus and the pontine nuclei (PN), structures that are essential for conditioning using a peripheral CS. The results suggest that the cerebellum and associated brain stem… CONTINUE READING
