Electrode penetrations were made in the mesencephalon and caudal brainstem at the levels of the periaqueductal gray matter (PAG) and nucleus raphe magnus (NRM) in chloralose-anaesthetized or decerebrate cats. In a systematic fashion, mesencephalic and brainstem loci at every 1 mm of vertical depth were electrically stimulated in a series of mediolateral or anteroposterior electrode penetrations to determine the lowest stimulation threshold at each locus for suppressing the digastric jaw-opening… CONTINUE READING
