Zusammenfassung

An decerebrierten und spinalen Katzen wurden diverse somatische Afferenzen in ihren synaptischen Wirkungen auf Vorderhornzellen verglichen. Bei der decerebrierten Katze waren deren erregende und hemmende Wirkungen stark herabgesetzt oder nicht nachweisbar. Somit werden Zwischenneurone im Reflexbogen durch supraspinale Zentren tonisch gehemmt. Die Bedeutung dieser Kontrolle für die Reflexregulierung wird besprochen.
