Electrical stimulation of rhesus monkey nucleus reticularis gigantocellularis


The nucleus reticularis gigantocellularis (NRG) receives monosynaptic input from the superior colliculus (SC) and projects directly to neck motor neuron pools. Neurons in NRG are well situated to play a critical role in transforming SC signals into head movement commands. A previous study of movements evoked by NRG stimulation in the primate reported a… (More)
