Abstract

Theoretical considerations are presented about the possible functional significance of special triadic synaptic arrangements in the medial cuneate nucleus. Although they cannot be regarded as functionally equivalent to the dendritic triadic arrangements in the thalamic nuclei, the cuneate axonal triads are likely to participate not only in distance dependent stimulus discrimination, but also in movement perception.
