The neural control system for generation of locomotion is an important system for analysis of neural mechanisms underlying complex motor acts. In these studies, a novel experimental model using neonatal rat brain stem and spinal cord in vitro was developed for investigation of the locomotor system in mammals. The in vitro brain stem and spinal cord system was shown to retain functional circuitry for locomotor command generation, motor pattern generation, and sensorimotor integration.
