Discharge properties of cat cervical motoneurons innervating distal forelimb muscles were investigated by intracellular current injection. Values for rheobase current, afterhyperpolarization duration and several measures of repetitive discharge characteristics were in most respects similar to those obtained for hindlimb motoneurons.
