Abducens neurons undergo a dose-dependent synaptic blockade (either disinhibition or complete blockade) when tetanus neurotoxin (TeNT) is injected into the lateral rectus muscle at either a low (0.5) or a high dose (5 ng/kg). We studied the firing pattern and recruitment order in abducens neurons both in control and after TeNT injection. The eye position threshold for recruitment of control abducens neurons was exponentially related to the eye position and velocity sensitivities. We also found… CONTINUE READING
