The effects of substantia nigra (SN) stimulation on the activity of the nucleus ventralis lateralis of the thalamus (VL) have been studied. The VL cells were identified as relay or non-relay cells among the cerebellothalamocortical pathway on the basis of orthodromical activation from the cerebellum and antidromical activation from the cortex. Certain experiments were performed after wide pericruciate decortication in order to eliminate the response due to unavoidable activation of corticofugal… CONTINUE READING
