Abstract

Abstract Commissural neurons were studied in 14 cats by examining the contralateral location of neurons labeled 24 h after the injection of horseradish peroxidase into the vestibular nuclei. After establishing the distribution of labeled cells in a group of seven animals, the changes in this pattern were examined when the retrograde flow of tracer was impeded by midline transection in a second group of seven cats. These results indicated that commissural units were located mainly in the superior and medial vestibular nuclei. The Group Y nucleus also represents a connecting link to the contralateral brain stem, and a moderate number of commissural neurons were found in the descending vestibular nucleus.
