Injections of a tritiated amino acid-fluorescent dye mixture were made unilaterally into the area of the mesencephalic locomotor region (MLR). After allowing for retrograde and anterograde transport, the same site was electrically stimulated to induce locomotion on a treadmill following a precollicular-postmamillary transection. The tritiated amino acid… CONTINUE READING
