Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Intracellular studies of brain stem reticular control on sensorimotor cortical neurons are scanty and controversial in the literature. The aim of this investigation has been to study the effects of caudal (synchronizing) and rostral (desynchronizing) brain stem stimulation on the spontaneous firing and membrane potential of sensorimotor cortical neurons, intracellularly recorded.
