1. In a series of intercollicular decerebrated and decerebellated cats, the dorsal part of the lower medulla was explored in search for the modality and topographical arrangement of the spinal afferents, employing microelectrodes inserted freehand. All the responses were produced by mechanical deformation of peripheral tissues and were obtained ipsilaterally.2. The responses observed were classified into three groups:(a) unit discharges responding to stimulation of deep tissues, showing slow…

Synaptic transmission of proprioceptive and cutaneous impulses through the cuneate nucleus
TLDR
A group of cells has been found which is activated during stimulation of both cutaneous and proprioceptive afferents with approximately the same latency, and these cells are distributed diffusely throughout the depth of the nucleus.
Nucleus Z, the medullary relay in the projection path to the cerebral cortex of group I muscle afferents from the cat's hind limb
TLDR
The medullary relay of hind limb muscle afferents was studied in cats anaesthetized with chloralose and graded electrical stimulation of the muscle nerves was used.
