1. Excitatory post-synaptic potentials (e.p.s.p.s) were evoked in spinal alpha-motoneurones of the cat by impulses in single group Ia nerve fibres. 2. The average peak amplitude of some of these e.p.s.p.s was increased by a conditioning tetanus. The maximum increase observed was 54% of the control amplitude. 3. The average peak amplitude of some e.p.s.p.s was increased by a single conditioning stimulus which preceded the test stimulus by 1 or 2 msec. The maximum increase observed was 28% of the… CONTINUE READING
