Sound clicks or light flashes modify somatic sensory activity in the cuneate nucleus of the cat. The techniques of gross potential recording in the cuneate nucleus or medial lemniscal tract, of single unit recording in the cuneate nucleus, and of excitability testing of cuneate terminals demonstrate this heterosensory interactionsensory interaction.
