Responses of motoneurons supplying muscles of the forelimbs, hindlimbs, back, and neck to stimulation of the medial pontomedullary reticular formation were studied with intracellular recording in cere-bellectomized cats under chloralose anesthesia. Stimulation of the midline or of a reticular region consisting of nucleus reticularis (n.r.) pontis caudalis and the dorsorostral part of n.r. gigantocellularis produced monosynaptic excitation of ipsilateral motoneurons supplying axial muscles and… CONTINUE READING
