Intracellular recordings from ipsilateral and contralateral neck extensor and flexor motoneurons were studied to determine the connections between the utricular nerve and neck motoneurons and between saccular nerves and neck motoneurons in cats. Stimulating electrodes were placed within the left utricular nerve or saccular nerve. Electrical stimulation of the utricular nerve evoked excitatory postsynaptic potentials (EPSPs) with disynaptic latency in almost all ipsilateral extensor motoneurons… CONTINUE READING
