Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Physiological studies of the pathways from the brain and midbrain to the spinal cord have a very long history, from Sherrington and other key investigators around the turn of the nineteenth century. Much of this early knowledge has informed and provided a platform on which more recent understanding of the motor hierarchy is built.
