Spike trains of 153 single units were recorded in the caudoventral part of the thalamic reticular nucleus (RE) of 7 nitrous oxide anaesthetized cats. Functional properties defined by spontaneous activity pattern, studied by mean of auto renewal density histograms, were used to subdivide the units into 4 groups. Types I (18%), II (56%) and III (15%) were defined by an increasing bursting activity and Type IV (11%) by firing no bursts spontaneously. The responses to auditory stimuli confirmed… CONTINUE READING
