1. In order to test the hypothesis that bradykinin has a sensitizing action on muscle receptors (e.g. during a myositis), the response properties of single group III and IV afferent units from the cat gastrocnemius-soleus muscle were compared before and after infiltration of their receptive fields with a bradykinin solution. According to their responses to graded natural stimuli (local pressure, stretch, contractions and temperature changes) the units were classified as (a) nociceptors, (b) low… CONTINUE READING
