Abstract The angles of the joints of the hindlimb and the electromyographical activity of the hindlimb muscles were recorded during locomotion in mesencephalic and thalamic cats. Electrical stimulation of the Deiters' nucleus, the bulbar reticular formation, the red nucleus and the pyramidal tract was carried out during locomotion. Short trains of impulses were applied at different phases of the animal's step. The strength of applied stimulus was so weak that it produced only slight motor… CONTINUE READING
