Activity evoked by A- and C-afferent fibers in rat dorsal horn neurons and its relation to a flexion reflex.
The responses of 56 neurons recorded in the lumbosacral spinal cord of halothane-anesthetized rats were studied following the application of mechanical stimuli to the skin on the lateral aspect ofExpand

Spontaneous muscle twitches during sleep guide spinal self-organization
During development, information about the three-dimensional shape and mechanical properties of the body is laid down in the synaptic connectivity of sensorimotor systems through unknown adaptiveExpand

Functional organization of the nociceptive withdrawal reflexes
Summary1. The organization of the nociceptive hind-limb withdrawal reflexes was investigated in 93 halothane/nitrous oxide anesthetized rats. Electromyographical techniques were used to record reflexExpand

Topography and nociceptive receptive fields of climbing fibres projecting to the cerebellar anterior lobe in the cat.
1. The cutaneous receptive fields of 225 climbing fibres projecting to the forelimb area of the C3 zone in the cerebellar anterior lobe were mapped in the pentobarbitone‐anaesthetized cat. ResponsesExpand

Developmental Learning in a Pain-Related System: Evidence for a Cross-Modality Mechanism
The nociceptive spinal reflex system performs highly precise sensorimotor transformations that require functionally specified synaptic strengths. The specification is gradually attained during earlyExpand

Sensorimotor transformation in a spinal motor system
To use sensory information from the skin to guide motor behaviour the central nervous system must transform sensory coordinates into movement coordinates. As yet, the basic principles of this crucialExpand

Implant Size and Fixation Mode Strongly Influence Tissue Reactions in the CNS
The function of chronic brain machine interfaces depends on stable electrical contact between neurons and electrodes. A key step in the development of interfaces is therefore to identify implantExpand

We show that functional sensorimotor modules probe the sensory signals from the body that are generated as a consequence of module specific activity and use this sensory feedback to calibrate the strength in its input-output connections. Expand

Cutaneous field stimulation (CFS): a new powerful method to combat itch
Abstract Scratching the skin, while instantly relieving itch, often aggravates itch over time due to skin injury. To relieve itch, without damaging the skin, a new technique termed cutaneous fieldExpand
