In female rats anesthetized with urethane, 151 neurons in and around the ventromedial nucleus of the hypothalamus were identified by antidromic activation as having axonal projection to the mesencephalic central gray at the midcollicular level. Identified neurons were most numerous in the rostral part and at the borders of the nucleus. Antidromic spike latencies, constant for a given cell to stimulation with fixed intensity at a low repetition rate, had a wide range across cells (1.4–41.5 ms… CONTINUE READING
