After contralateral hemi-cerebellectomy, neurons in the cat inferior olive may either degenerate, appear unchanged (affected) or become hypertrophic. Morphological and physiological aspects of the latter two cell types are studied by means of intracellular recording and injection techniques and compared to normal olivary neurons. It is demonstrated that affected and hypertrophic olivary neurons can be activated by mesodiencephalic stimulation. Affected olivary neurons are morphologically very… CONTINUE READING
