Current applied near the midline brainstem elicits rapid ipsiversive circling. Pontine and midbrain sites were stimulated concurrently with paired pulses and the number of pulse pairs required to produce 3 complete circles in 10 s was measured at various intrapair (C-T) intervals. The same results were obtained when C pulses were presented via the midbrain electrode and T pulses via the pontine electrode, or vice versa: as C-T interval increased from 0.4 to 2.0 ms, the number of pulse pairs… CONTINUE READING
