Postsynaptic responses evoked by stimulation of the descending tract and dorsal roots were investigated by means of intracellular microelectrodes in experiments on preparation of the isolated lamprey spinal cord. Besides giant reticulospinal (Mullerian) axons, a broad spectrum of descending fibers and dorsal-root afferents were shown to form synaptic inputs with both chemical and electrical mechanisms of transmission with motoneurons, as revealed by the sensitivity of the corresponding PSPs to… CONTINUE READING
