Repetitive electrical stimulation of wrist extensor muscles in rat was combined with quantitative 14C-deoxyglucose autoradiography to study sensory systems functionally activated during forelimb movement. Metabolism increased ipsilaterally in the wrist extensors, the dorsal horn of the cervical spinal cord, the cuneate nucleus and cerebellar hemisphere. The… CONTINUE READING
