Scientific Abstract

A method of locating the position of a selected neural centre in the central nervous system of an animal is disclosed. The method comprises the steps of (a) stimulating neurons at a first central nervous system position; (b) measuring the field potential evoked at a second central nervous system position; and (c) comparing the evoked field potential against a known evoked field potential from the neural centre.
