Antidromically identified neurons projecting to the putamen (CPNs) and pyramidal tract neurons (PTNs) were recorded from motor and premotor cortex of a monkey which performed a load-bearing task with the wrist. CPNs appeared as a uniform population with very slowly conducting axons and low spontaneous activity. In contrast to PTNs, they exhibited weak, mostly insignificant correlation with graded steady-state forces, responded to torque perturbations with remarkably long latency, and seemed to… CONTINUE READING
