  • This study attempts to determine if the axonal endings of dorsal root sensory fibers and of descending axons to the spinal gray matter in the guinea pig store glutamate and/or aspartate. Bilateral dorsal rhizotomy (spinal segments C5-T1) and partial cordotomy (segment C5, right side) were used to interrupt primary sensory and descending tracts, respectively. At 1 and 2 days after surgery, amino acid levels were determined in regions microdissected from areas of the gray matter of spinal segment… CONTINUE READING
