The cytoarchitectonic organization of the spinal cord in the rat. I. The lower thoracic and lumbosacral cord
The Cytoarchitectonic organization of the rat spinal cord was found to be basically similar to that of the cat, although certain differences exist—for example, in the extension of the laminae. Expand
Neuropathic pain after traumatic spinal cord injury – relations to gender, spinal level, completeness, and age at the time of injury
The results show that neuropathic pain after SCI is common and occurs much more often in patients injured at higher ages, indicating the importance of neuroanalgetic intervention, in particular for patients injured in higher ages. Expand
Changing pattern Of C-FOS expression in spinal cord neurons after electrical stimulation of the chronically injured sciatic nerve in the rat
Sciatic nerve stimulation after crush injury resulted in more variable side differences, with tendencies for the same alterations as those noted after chronic transection-ligation; at longer survival times, the difference between the normal and injured side seen weeks after injury tended to disappear.

Differences in the chemical expression of rat primary afferent neurons which innervate skin, muscle or joint
The fluorescent dye Fast Blue was injected in anaesthetized rats into either skin, muscle or knee joint of the hindlimb and the cell bodies of primary afferent neurons innervating these different target tissues were identified in ganglion sections by fluorescence microscopy. Expand
Prolonged relief of neuralgia after regional anesthetic blocks. A call for further experimental and systematic clinical studies
These experiments provided no evidence in support of the hypothesis that a prolonged analgesia may be the result of a central action of the local anesthetic at the spinal level after intra‐axonal incorporation and centripetal axoplasmic transport. Expand
A quantitative analysis of the microglial cell reaction in central primary sensory projection territories following peripheral nerve injury in the adult rat
The results show that the signal (or signals) that induces the microglial cell response in primary sensory projection territories is rapid in comparison to previously described central degenerative changes following peripheral nerve lesions (transganglionic degeneration). Expand
Substance P-, somatostatin- and calcitonin gene-related peptide-like immunoreactivity and fluoride resistant acid phosphatase-activity in relation to retrogradely labeled cutaneous, muscular and
The distribution of several peptides in cutaneous, muscular and visceral primary sensory neurons was investigated in the adult rat and the vast majority of the visceral sensory neurons were found to contain CGRP-LI. Expand
Cutaneous projections from the rat hindlimb foot to the substantia gelatinosa of the spinal cord studied by transganglionic transport of WGA‐HRP conjugate
The somatotopic organization of cutaneous afferent fibers from the hind‐limb foot in the substantia gelatinosa of the spinal cord was investigated in adult Sprague Dawley rats followingExpand
Distribution of antinociceptive adenosine a1 receptors in the spinal cord dorsal horn, and relationship to primary afferents and neuronal subpopulations
The results indicate that most of the adenosine A1 receptors in the dorsal horn are located in inner lamina II postsynaptic neuronal cell bodies and processes whose functional and neurochemical identity is so far unknown. Expand
Cytoarchitectonic organization of the spinal cord in the rat: II. The cervical and upper thoracic cord
A laminar cytoarchitectonic scheme of the cervical and upper thoracic segments of the rat spinal cord is presented in which Rexed's principles for the cat are applied and was found to be basically similar to that of the cat. Expand
