Upper eyelid movements were conditioned in the alert cat to the presentation of either tones or short, weak air puffs applied to the ipsi- or contralateral cornea followed by an unconditioned stimulus consisting of a long, strong air puff applied to the ipsilateral cornea. Eyelid movements were measured with the search-coil technique. Electromyographs of the orbicularis oculi muscle were also recorded. Quantitative analysis of the latencies and topographic profiles of eyelid conditioned… CONTINUE READING
