Low-threshold mechanosensory nerves in the adult rat differ both from their counterparts in lower vertebrates and from high-threshold nociceptive nerves in mammals in that they appear not to undergo collateral sprouting into adjacent denervated skin, although they will clearly regenerate into it after they are damaged. We have now studied the growth capabilities of the low-threshold nerves supplying touch domes, the visible mechanosensory structures scattered throughout the hairy skin. Touch… CONTINUE READING
