Intracellular recordings were obtained from 204 neurones in the lateral reticular nucleus (LRN). LRN neurones contacted by the bVFRT were identified by the responses evoked on stimulation of descending fibres in the contralateral ventral quadrant of the spinal cord (cVQ) at cervical (C5cVQ) and lumbar (L2cVQ) levels. Stimulation of the cVQ evoked excitatory or inhibitory responses in 124 of the 204 LRN neurones. EPSPs were evoked in 45, IPSPs in 52 and both EPSPs and IPSPs in 27 LRN neurones… CONTINUE READING
