Abstract

1. We explored the region of the principal sensory nucleus of thalamus (Vc) during stereotactic surgical procedures for treatment of patients with pain after spinal cord transection (spinal patients, n = 5) or of patients with movement disorders (n = 23). Receptive fields (RFs) of thalamic single neurons and locations of sensations evoked by stimulation (projected field, PF) were determined by standard methods. The cellular thalamic region where sensations were evoked at
