As part of an attempt to understand the spinal control of the segmented axial musculature in goldfish, commissural spinal interneurons that are electronically coupled to the Mauthner axon (M-axon) were studied with intracellular recording and staining to examine their morphology, segmental relationships, and functional role. Prior studies suggested that these cells might mediate the crossed inhibition that blocks excitation of motoneurons on one side of the body during an escape bend to the… CONTINUE READING
