Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We studied modulation of the activities of the red nucleus (RN) neurons under to electrical stimulation of the orofacial motor cortex (OfM) in urethane-anesthetized rats. Of 57 neurons studied, 30 (53%) neurons modulated the firing patterns. The firing patterns of the RN neurons were classified into four types: an excitation (E) type (n=4), a long inhibition (LI) type (n=4), a short inhibition (SI) type (n=22), and a no-effect type (n=27). These modulated neurons were intermingled in the dorso-ventral part of the RN. Our results suggest that the RN neurons receive excitatory or inhibitory inputs from the OfM.
