  • The present study was designed to determine whether the transmission of cutaneous afferent information from the limbs to the medullary reticular formation is phasically modulated during locomotion. Experiments were carried out in three chronically prepared, intact cats in which nerve cuff electrodes were placed, bilaterally, on the superficial radial and the superficial peroneal nerves. Thirty-seven reticulospinal neurones (RSNs) were identified by stimulation of their axons in the lumbar… CONTINUE READING
