1. In cats anaesthetized with Nembutal climbing fibre (CF) responses evoked in individual cerebellar Purkyne cells by mechanical stimulation of the skin were conditioned by preceding stimuli both to the periphery and to the precruciate area of the cerebral cortex.2. Cortical stimulation, generally subthreshold for evoking a CF response itself, induced an inhibition of cutaneous evoked CF responses in 65% of all Purkyne cells tested. The maximum inhibition ranged from 40 to 100% of the control… CONTINUE READING
