Effect of stimulation of the nucleus entopeduncularis on neurons of thalamic motor nuclei under normal conditions and after injury of the nigrostriatal dopaminergic system by the neurotoxin mptp

In two series of acute experiments on cats anesthetized with ketamine and immobilized with succinylcholine chloride, we investigated the reactions of neurons of the ventral anterior (VA) and ventral lateral (VL) motor nuclei of the thalamus to stimulation of the nucleus entopeduncularis (nEp) in intact animals and in animals administered the neurotoxin N… CONTINUE READING
