So oscillating muscle activity is due to spinal neuron discharge without the inhibitory effect of the brain (on spinal neurons).  ie the brain’s inhibition has been removed (by destroying the brain), allowing the spinal cord to fire the muscles.

If this is true then shouldn’t you get the same result by severing the cord (say) at the neck level, which also removes brain inhibition?  I think the answer is yes – based on what happens to beheaded chickens.  But have you also seen this with neck shots while hunting?
