Peripheral input to lamina VIII interneurones was investigated by using extracellular and/or intracellular records from them. The interneurones were located in the L4-L5 spinal segments and projected to contralateral motor nuclei in the L7 segment. They constituted a non-homogeneous population but their input from muscle afferents (mainly group II afferents of quadriceps, flexor digitorum longus and pretibial flexors and group I afferents of triceps surae and hamstring nerves) and from… CONTINUE READING
