Correlative physiological and morphological studies of rapidly adapting mechanoreceptors in cat's glabrous skin.
1. A total of fifty‐four mechanoreceptor afferent units with fast conducting axons in the tibial nerve innervating the glabrous skin of the hind leg were isolated in anaesthetized cats. 2. Twenty‐sixExpand

Responsiveness of solitario-parabrachial relay neurons to taste and mechanical stimulation applied to the oral cavity in rats
SummaryA total of 311 units, responsive to natural stimulation of the oral cavity, were isolated from the rostral part of the solitary tract nucleus (NTS) of rats. Of these, 169 “taste neurons”,Expand

Voltage‐dependent currents in isolated single Merkel cells of rats.
1. Merkel cells were dissociated enzymatically from the footpad epidermis of 10‐ to 20‐day‐old rats pretreated with fluorescent dye, quinacrine, for purposes of staining. The fluorescent Merkel cellsExpand

Nociceptor-driven dorsal horn neurones in the lumbar spinal cord of the cat
&NA; Single dorsal horn neurones have been recorded extracellularly in the lumbar spinal cord of cats anaesthetized with chloralose. Cold block at L1 was used to provide reversible spinalization. TheExpand

Taste area in granular and dysgranular insular cortices in the rat identified by stimulation of the entire oral cavity
While applying natural stimulation to the entire oral cavity, we recorded responses from 489 neurons (400 mechanoreceptive, 84 taste and 5 cold neurons) in the insular cortex of urethane-anesthetizedExpand

Functional MRI detection of activation in the primary gustatory cortices in humans.
Magnetoencephalography (MEG) has recently revealed that the transitions between the parietal operculum (Pop) and the insula (area G) and the ventral end of the central sulcus (cs) were activated withExpand

Gustatory evoked cortical activity in humans studied by simultaneous EEG and MEG recording.
Evoked potentials are widely used in clinical medicine for objective evaluation of sensory disturbances. However, gustatory evoked potentials (GEPs) have not been extensively studied due to lack ofExpand

Gustatory coding in the precentral extension of area 3 in Japanese macaque monkeys; comparison with area G
The precentral extension of area 3 as well as the transition between the frontal operculum and insula (area G) comprises the primary gustatory cortex in the subhuman primate, receiving projectionsExpand

Multiple sensitivity of chorda tympani fibres of the rat and hamster to gustatory and thermal stimuli
1. Impulse discharges in single chorda tympani fibres of rats and hamsters in response to gustatory stimuli representing the four basic qualities of taste as well as to cooling and warming of theExpand

Spatio-temporal analysis of cortical activity evoked by gustatory stimulation in humans.
Gustatory activated regions in the cerebral cortex have not been identified precisely in humans. In this study we recorded the magnetic fields from the brain in response to two tastants, 1 M NaCl andExpand
