Sprouting of peptidergic nociceptive and descending supraspinal projections to the dorsal horn following spinal cord injury (SCI) has been proposed as a mechanism of neuropathic pain. To identify structural changes that could initiate or maintain SCI pain, we used a complete transection model in rats to examine how structural remodeling in the dorsal horn rostral to the lesion relates to distance from injury, laminar region, and duration of injury. The major classes of C‐fiber primary afferents… Expand
