The retrograde axonal transport method has been employed to identify the cell bodies of cortical neurons projecting directly to the spinal cord in the monkey. The investigation has focused on aspects of the laminar, columnar, and somatotopic organization of corticospinal neurons within each of the cytoarchitectural and functional subdivisions of the sensorimotor cortex. The principle findings of these experiments are that: i) cortical regions containing cell bodies of corticospinal neurons are… CONTINUE READING
