Selective impairment of the cerebellar C1 module involved in rat hind limb control reduces step-dependent modulation of cutaneous reflexes.

Pijpers A, Winkelman BH, Bronsing R, Ruigrok TJ (2008) Selective impairment of the cerebellar C1 module involved in rat hind limb control reduces step-dependent modulation of cutaneous reflexes. J Neurosci 28:2179-2189. doi: 10.1523/JNEUROSCI.4668-07.2008

Summary: The cerebellar cortex is arranged in a series of modules. Elucidation of module-specific function has been difficult because of the closely arranged structure of these modules. Here the authors lesioned the C1/C3 hindlimb module of the rat with CTB-SAP (Cat. #IT-14). Rats received 75-125 ng injections of CTB-SAP into the C1 zone of the copula pyramidis or the paramedian lobule of the right cerebellar hemisphere. C1-injected animals displayed marked diminishment of cutaneously induced reflexes with no significant impact on walking or stepping pattern.
