Synaptic Connections on Spinal Motoneurons

Post by Alexk » Fri Feb 19, 2016 8:23 am

Dear all,

I have been looking for this for a while and thought perhaps you can give me some hints in this matter as well, since I did not find that much yet.
I am looking for studies, identifying the dendritic location of efferent and afferent connections on spinal motorneurons. I know of studies looking at Ia afferent connections (e.g. Burke and Glenn, 1996; Rotterman, 2014), but none labeling the location of efferent synapses so far. I am specifically interested in the statistical spatial (or angular) distribution of different terminals on the Alpha MNs.
Does anyone know whether anymore work exists on this topic?

best wishes and thanks in advance,
