Effects of stimulation of flexor reflex afferents were studied in decerebrate immobilized cats. Stimulation of ipsilateral afferents evoked late long-lasting discharges in the nerves to the flexors, whereas stimulation of contralateral afferents led to similar discharges in nerves to both extensors and flexors. Compared with spinal animals, early segmental reflexes in thalamic cats were tonically depressed. Similar tonic inhibition of segmental reflexes took place in spinal animals after… CONTINUE READING
