The electrophysiological alterations provoked by axotomy have now been studied for almost half a century, in a number of different cell types. Consequently, it is now possible to detail some common mechanisms underlying these changes and to sort out certain trends in the data. The major phenomena reviewed in this section and some possible future directions are summarized below. (1) It is now possible to advance a unified hypothesis for the effects of axotomy on the conduction velocity of… CONTINUE READING
