The Reticular Formation of the Brain Stem
Sumner, Thomas E.
MetadataShow full item record
The following discussion attempts to clarify and correlate current research data concerning the brain stem reticular formation. The primary criterion for selection of studies cited in this paper was their pertinence to structural-functional correlations within the reticular formation. As a consequence, inclusion or exclusion of various studies necessarily was influenced by the author's bias in evaluating their relative contributions. Since I did not perform micro-electrode experiments to validify or refute the conclusions of the selected studies, I could not criticize or elucidate on the basis of firsthand experience.
