Electrical stimulation of the right forelimb motor (MI) sensory (SI) cortex in normal, adult rats produced repetitive left forelimb movements. Regions of increased (14C) 2-deoxyglucose (2DG) uptake were mapped auto-radiographically during these movements. MI stimulation activated the ipsilateral reticular tegmental pontine nucleus (RTP) and the middle (rostral-caudal) third of the pontine nuclei including pyramidal (P), medial (POM), ventral (POV), and lateral (POL) pontine nuclei.
