In order to investigate if inter-limb propriospinal reflexes participate in coordination of locomotive movements of fore- and hindlimbs, we examined the relations between fore- and hindlimbs during overground locomotion of adult cats with spinal cord lesions. In a group of cats (T-T preparations), the spinal cord was hemisected first at around Th12 and then at intervals of 37-126 days contralaterally at mid-thoracic level, propriospinal tracts being mostly severed in this group. In a second… CONTINUE READING
