Rotation Compensating Reflexes Independent of the Labyrinth

  • Published 2004


Pigeons without labyrinths or with sectioned spinal cords continue to show compensatory reflexes to passive body rotations. This paper reports electrophysiological efforts to identify the source of afference controlling these reflexes. A proportion of fibres in lumbosacral spinal dorsal roots were found to respond briskly to body rotations around the… (More)
