This study investigated the nature of synaptic inputs from the Forel's field H (FFH) in the medial mesodiencephalic junction to inferior oblique (IO) motoneurons in the oculomotor nucleus and superior oblique (SO) motoneurons in the trochlear nucleus in anesthetized cats, using intracellular recording techniques. Stimulation of the FFH induced monosynaptic EPSPs in IO motoneurons on both sides. Paired stimulation of the ipsilateral FFH and contralateral vestibular nerve substantiated that the… CONTINUE READING
