The trigeminal nerve in the rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss, was examined for the presence of A-delta and C fibres. Sections of the three branches of the trigeminal nerve were found to comprise a range of fibre types including A-delta and C fibres. The size range of the cell bodies of the trigeminal ganglion reflected the fibre range since they correlated with the size range of axons in the nerve branches. Electrophysiological recordings of evoked activity from the ganglion confirmed the… Expand
Trigeminal somatosensory innervation of the head of a teleost fish with particular reference to nociception
TLDR
The trigeminal nerve of a teleost fish, the rainbow trout, was examined to determine what types of somatosensory receptors were present on the head of the trout specifically searching for nociceptors, which had similar physiological properties to nocICEptors found in higher vertebrates. Expand
Do fishes have nociceptors? Evidence for the evolution of a vertebrate sensory system
TLDR
This study provides significant evidence of nociception in teleost fishes and demonstrates that behaviour and physiology are affected over a prolonged period of time, suggesting discomfort. Expand

TLDR
The electrophysiological properties of fish nociceptors are almost identical to those found in higher vertebrates suggesting the evolution of these properties occurred before the emergence of the fish groups. Expand
Properties of corneal receptors in a teleost fish
TLDR
The lack of cold sensitive neurons in the rainbow trout may provide evidence for the evolution of cold nociceptors in vertebrates that is related to the transition from poikilothermy to homeothermy. Expand
Characterisation of chemosensory trigeminal receptors in the rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss: responses to chemical irritants and carbon dioxide
TLDR
This is the first time that external CO2 receptors have been identified on the head of a fish and a range of chemical stimulants were applied to determine whether the receptors have a nociceptive function. Expand
Nociception in fish: stimulus–response properties of receptors on the head of trout Oncorhynchus mykiss
TLDR
All receptor types except mechanothermal nociceptors showed an increase in peak firing frequency with increased strength of mechanical stimulation, with evidence of response saturation at higher intensities, and none out of 120 receptors tested gave any response to the temperature range +4 degrees C to -7 degrees C, indicating an absence of cold nocICEptors. Expand
The Descending Diencephalic Dopamine System Is Tuned to Sensory Stimuli
TLDR
The activation of posterior tubercular dopaminergic neurons by sensory stimuli, and their projections onto peripheral mechanosensory systems, suggests a participation of A11-type neurons in the feedback regulation of sensory systems. Expand
Evoked potentials in the Atlantic cod following putatively innocuous and putatively noxious electrical stimulation: a minimally invasive approach
TLDR
A novel, minimally invasive method for recording SEPs from the central nervous system of the Atlantic cod elicited responses that could originate from multiple brain regions, possibly representing qualitative differences in central processing between somatosensory and nociceptive stimuli. Expand
Behavioural analysis of a nociceptive event in fish: Comparisons between three species demonstrate specific responses
TLDR
Dissimilarities in response to potentially painful stimulation in common carp, zebrafish and rainbow trout demonstrate that there are species-specific behavioural and physiological responses to a nociceptive event in fish. Expand

TLDR
There is ample evidence to demonstrate that it is highly likely that fish experience pain and that pain-related behavioural changes are conserved across vertebrates. Expand

Quantitative study of primary sensory neurone populations of three species of elasmobranch fish
TLDR
The results are interpreted as indications that sharks and rays lack the neural apparatus essential for the sensation of pain and it is suggested that, to these life forms, the perception of pain might have little relevance to survival. Expand
Localization of enkephalin immunoreactivity in the spinal cord of the long‐tailed ray Himantura fai
TLDR
Enkephalin‐like immunoreactivity (ENK‐LI) was found throughout the spinal cord of the long‐tailed ray Himantura fai and one‐third of all enkephalineergic cells were found throughout laminae A and B, while two‐thirds were located in the medial half of C, D, and E. Expand

One aim in the investigation of the trigeminal sensory system is to identify not only those neural mechanisms that have a structural and functional parallel in the spinal somatic sensory system, but also those mechanisms that subserve a special local sensory role. Expand

Intracellular recordings were made from neurons of the trigeminal sensory ganglia of young adult sea lampreys, and four classes of sensory cells were identified, indicating that nociceptive cells had smaller diameter axons. Expand
