Central sprouting and functional plasticity of regenerated primary afferents.


A combination of neuroanatomical and electrophysiological techniques was used to study the effects of peripheral axotomy and regeneration of primary afferents on their central projections in the spinal cord. Individual regenerated afferent fibers were impaled with HRP-filled electrodes in the dorsal columns of alpha-chloralose-anesthetized cats and… (More)
