The conditioned tactile placing of the forelimbs was abolished contralaterally after unilateral neodecortication or ipsilaterally after hemisection of spinal cord at high cervical level in cats. However, the conditioned response can be regained with training. The results suggest that training activates additional pathways for the conditioned response.
