Descending inputs to spinal cord neurons in mammals have previously been characterized functionally using microelectrode recording of single neurons, a technique with high spatial and temporal resolution but low yield. Consequently our knowledge about the functional connections between the brain and the spinal cord has been accumulating at a very low pace. Here we describe a high throughput optical recording approach in an ex vivo brainstem-spinal cord preparation of the neonatal mouse that… CONTINUE READING
