In rats under sodium pentobarbitone anaesthesia the inferior olive region has been reversibly inactivated by applying a cooling probe to the ventral surface of the medulla. Unitary activity has been recorded from the fastigial, interpositus and Deiters nuclei. Identification of units was based on the presence of a dye spot, left by the recording micropipette. In the Deiters nucleus, an additional criterion of identification was the antidromic activation from spinal cord stimulation. Following… CONTINUE READING
