The consummatory components of ingestion and rejection, organized in the caudal brainstem, include licking, swallowing, and the oral phase of rejection (gaping). Studies employing electrical-stimulation induced motor activity have localized interneurons controlling these complex motor patterns to the medullary reticular formation (RF), but the characteristics of these neurons during more naturally induced behavior are unknown. The purpose of the present study was to record the activity profiles… CONTINUE READING
