Neuronal connections between the posterior vermis including the fastigial nucleus and the prepositus nucleus were studied with electrophysiological and neuropharmacological methods in the cat. Spontaneous discharges of neurons in the prepositus nucleus were depressed by microstimulation of the contralateral vermis, lobule VI. This depressive effect was blocked by the injection of bicuculline into the caudal part of the fastigial nucleus. These prepositus neurons also showed long-lasting… CONTINUE READING
