Abstract

ALTHOUGH a rich literature is available concerning the anatomy and the physiology of the lateral corticospinal tract, no reports have been published in which intracellular electrodes were employed in studying the synaptic connexions of the corticospinal tract in the lumbar spinal cord. Lloyd1 used extracellular and ventral root recording, and laid the theoretical groundwork for the present study.
