Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Effects of stimulation of the cerebellar nuclei were investigated by intracellular recordings from fast and slow pyramidal tract neurons and thalamocortical neurons in the cat. The present study demonstrated that: (1) the interpositus and the dentate nuclei excite PTNs in the motor cortex; (2) single pyramidal tract neurons receive convergent inputs from both nuclei, and (3) the convergence of the inputs from both nuclei occurs at the level of the ventrolateral nucleus of the thalamus.
