Abstract [en]

Recent studies from our group have demonstrated the existence of a disynaptic excitatory cortico-motoneuronal (CM) pathway in macaque monkeys via propriospinal neurons in the midcervical segments. Results from behavioral studies with lesion of the direct pathway suggest that the indirect CM pathway can mediate the command for dexterous finger movements.
