The turtle spinal cord produces three forms of the hindlimb scratch reflex. Each scratch form is initiated in response to gentle mechanical stimulation of a distinct set of sites in the periphery, termed the receptive field for that scratch form. The turtle spinal cord consists of 8 cervical segments (C1-C8), 10 dorsal segments (D1-D10), 2 sacral segments (S1, S2), and about 16 caudal segments (Ca1-Ca16). First, we recorded cutaneous afferents in peripheral nerves to reveal the tactile… CONTINUE READING
