Single cell recordings were made from neurons in the lateral tegmental field of the medulla (LTFM) during electrical stimulation of the hypothalamic defense area (HDA) of the rabbit. Fifty-four cells were inhibited by HDA stimulation; 23 of these cells received barosensory input. Twenty-two LTFM cells showed an increase in firing rate during HDA stimulation… CONTINUE READING
