Single units were recorded in the magnocellular red nucleus (RNm) while digit movements were monitored in a monkey performing on an individual digit device. The monkey was trained to press switches for water reward while optical systems of infrared emitters and diodes were taped to thumb, index, middle and ring digits for monitoring movements. Of 53 neurons recorded while operating the individual digit device, 9 showed statistically significant parametric relationships with movement velocity… CONTINUE READING
