Spinal cord projections to the lateral vestibular nucleus (LVN) are relatively sparse in normal adult black-hooded rats. However, in response to hemicerebellectomy in 2--3-day-old rats an increase in spinovestibular fibers to the ipsilateral lateral vestibular nucleus was observed. This increased input appears to be due to fibers which would normally be destined for the cerebellum but which alternatively project to the functionally related lateral vestibular nucleus. Considering the… CONTINUE READING
