In decorticate, unanaesthetized and curarized rabbit preparations displaying spontaneous fictive locomotor sequences, the firing pattern of neurones was recorded extracellularly in the L6-S1 spinal cord. These neurones, located in the intermediate part of the cord, were not invaded by antidromic stimulation of the hindlimb muscle nerves and thus were considered as interneurones (or propriospinal or tract cells ascending to the brain). When compared to the output from the ipsilateral muscle… CONTINUE READING
