The major aim of this study was to define the topography of descending motor cortical influences on the dorsal column nuclei of the rat. A total of 1442 single neurons were recorded throughout the rat cuneate (Cu) or external cuneate (ECu) nuclei and classified according to their: 1) location within the nuclei, 2) receptive fields, and 3) response to… CONTINUE READING
