Dorsal column projection patterns and conduction velocities of regenerating myelinated sensory neurons were studied at intervals between 1 and 12 months after transection of the sural nerve. The neurons had significantly decreased conduction velocities, both in the fasciculus gracilis and in the periphery. Although dorsal root reflexes were temporarily abolished, there was no evidence of gross rearrangement of the neurons' ascending collaterals in the dorsal columns in response to transection… CONTINUE READING
