Abstract : Long-latency potentials of large amplitude are evoked in the region of the caudate nucleus by somatic, visual, auditory and olfactory stimulation either in anesthetised or non-anesthetised animals. Afferents are relayed through reticular formation, zona incerta, c. medianum, n. centralis medialis. The caudate responses were not spatially organized relative to the nature and locus of stimulation, they lacked a somatotopic arrangement. They were not modified by extensive ablation of cerebral and cerebellar cortex. Responses of short latency were elicited by motor cortex stimulation. (Author)
