1. Trains of action potentials in motoneurones frequently commence with an initial doublet; i.e. a uniquely short interspike interval. Previous authors have speculated on the functional importance of initial doublets. Here we test the hypotheses that these doublets are associated with particular classes of motoneurones or particular physiological conditions. 2. Discharges of inspiratory motoneurones were recorded extracellularly in the thoracic ventral horn of anaesthetized, paralysed cats… CONTINUE READING
