1. Micro-electrode recordings were made from axons of the spinocervical tract in unanaesthetized decerebrate-spinal cats.2. The effects of stimulation of (1) descending systems at the level of the upper cervical spinal cord and (2) hind limb cutaneous nerves, on discharges of spinocervical tract neurones were examined.3. Effects were obtained from bilateral spinal cord regions in the dorsolateral funiculi and the most medial and ventral parts of the ventral funiculi and also from the dorsal… CONTINUE READING
