1. Monkeys were trained to react to an arm perturbation according to an instruction delivered prior to the perturbation. There were two possible instructions (push or pull), and monkeys learned to respond accordingly regardless of the direction (push or pull) of the triggering perturbation. 2. Pyramidal tract neurons (PTNs) in contralateral motor cortex arm area responded to the triggering perturbation with two dissociable components: 1) a relatively short-latency (20-25 ms) reflex component… CONTINUE READING
