Hippocampal EEG and behaviour in dog. II. Hippocampal EEG correlates with elementary motor acts

By D.E.A.T. Arnolds, F.H. Lopes da Silva, J.W. Aitink and A. Kamp


A positive correlation has been shown between the speed of forced stepping on a conveyor belt and the amplitude and frequency of the concomitant hippocampal EEG.\ud \ud Significant modulation in the spectral properties of the dog's hippocampal EEG has been found in relation to 3 elementary motor acts: stepping, respiratory movements and a reflex movement in reaction to linear acceleration of the animal.\ud \ud The findings support the idea that within a certain experimental situation the hippocampal EEG reflects the intensity of motor behaviour in a non-specific but predictable way.\ud \ud However, some experimental results indicate that sensory inputs may modulate the hippocampal EEG as well
