1. The purpose of this study was to use the techniques of spike- and stimulus-triggered averaging (SpTA and StTA, respectively) to examine the output organization of individual rubromotoneuronal (RM) cells in relation to clusters of neighboring cells. SpTA of electromyographic (EMG) activity in awake monkeys reveals the target muscles of an individual recorded neuron, whereas StTA reveals the target muscles of the neuronal aggregate activated by the stimulus. 2. Three questions were of… CONTINUE READING
