x = No ICMS performed. NE: non-excitable site with ICMS.

Conventions for ICMS: D = Digits; E = Elbow; F = Face; S = Shoulder; W = wrist.

    Tracers
: biotinylated dextran amine (BDA), diamidino yellow (DY), fast blue (FB), fluoro ruby (FR), cholera-toxin B subunit (CB). Arrows means that the injection site encroaches the adjacent area pointed by the arrow. (Ml) indicates that the injection site in PMd-c or PMv-c encroaches Ml.

Below each tracer, the three numbers between parentheses give the total volume injected, the number of syringe penetrations and the total number of sites where the tracer was infused.
