Foci of Excitation and Conditions for Their Conversion into Dominant Foci

  • V. S. Rusinov

Abstract

The theory of the dominant focus, or dominant as it is generally called in Russian physiology, was created by A. A. Ukhtomskii. The term “dominant” was first used and conceived as a general principle governing the activity of neural centers in 1923, but the experimental material on which Ukhtomskii based his theory was published in 1911.
