1. Multi-unit recordings were made from SI cortex of barbiturte-anesthetized cats. In four cats, multiple vertical penetrations were made at closely spaced intervals. In 12 cats, long surface-parallel penetrations were made in the rostrocaudal or the lateromedial directions with observations taken every 100 micron. 2. Evidence is presented suggesting that cytoarchitectonic area 3a receives input from deep receptors and area 3b receives input from cutaneous receptors. 3. Within area 3b there was… CONTINUE READING
