Differential corticospinal projections in the cat. An autoradiographic tracing study.


An autoradiographic study of the corticospinal projections from different parts of the cat sensorimotor cortex produced the following findings. The lateral part of area 4 projects contralaterally to the lateral intermediate zone of the cervical enlargement only. The intermediate part of area 4 projects throughout the spinal cord, contralaterally to the lateral part of the intermediate zone and bilaterally to its ventromedial part. The lateral and medial part of area 3 project contralaterally to the cervical and lumbosacral dorsal horn (including laminae I and II), respectively.
