Classically conditioned withdrawal reflex in cerebellar patients. 1. Impaired conditioned responses

The role of the cerebellum in the classically conditioned, human lower-limb-withdrawal reflex was studied in ten patients with pure cerebellar diseases (CBL), ten patients showing additional extracerebellar symptoms (CBL+), and in 11 sex- and age-matched normal controls (CTRL). Where conditioning was successful, the electrically evoked, unconditioned response was preceded by a ...


Time constants of facilitation and depression in Renshaw cell responses to random stimulation of motor axons

In 9 adult anaesthetized cats, 22 lumbosacral Renshaw cells recorded with NaCl-filled micropipettes were activated by random stimulation of ventral roots or peripheral nerves. The stimulus patterns had mean rates of 9.5~13 or 20–23 or 45 pulses per second and were pseudo-Poisson; short intervals below ca. 5 ms (except in two cases) were excluded. The Renshaw cell responses were ...

Unilateral behavioural thermosensitivity after transection of one lateral funiculus in the cervical spinal cord of the cat

Cats were trained to discriminate temperature increases or decreases with the paws of one body half in a T-maze. The discriminatory proficiency was found to be inferior compared to cats who may use all four paws. The accomplishments of cats discriminating temperature decreases were superior to those of cats discriminating temperature increases. After transection of one lateral ...
