The food-taking movement by which a cat uses its forepaw to take a piece of food and bring it to its mouth normally depends on the cortico- (CS) and rubrospinal (RS) tracts and disappears when they are transected in C5; a slow reappearance over months is due to bulbospinal (BS) take-over. After complete CS transection but minimal RS transection, food-taking remains. If, one month later, the RS tract is completely transected, food-taking is not abolished as it is when transection is made in one… CONTINUE READING
