The pattern of inputs from six semicircular canals to neck motoneurons was investigated by stimulating six ampullary nerves electrically and recording intracellular potentials from motoneurons of the rectus capitis dorsalis (RD), the complexus (COMP) and the obliquus capitis caudalis (OCA) muscles at the upper cervical cord of the cat. RD and COMP motoneurons received disynaptic excitation from bilateral anterior and contralateral horizontal ampullary nerves and disynaptic inhibition from… CONTINUE READING
