Recently it has been possible to record electrically from motoneurones in the spinal cord of the anaesthetized cat by means of an intracellular electrode (Brock, Coombs & Eccles 1951, 1952). As with investigations on isolated nerve and muscle fibres (Ling & Gerard 1949; Nastuk & Hodgkin 1950; Weidmann 1951; Fatt & Katz 1951) the micro-electrode is a fine glass tube filled with 3 m-KCI and with a tip diameter of about 0-5 µ .Necessarily it has to be inserted ‘blindly’ into a motoneurone lying… CONTINUE READING
