Cerebral-evoked responses elicited by direct stimulation of the lateral spinothalamic tract in the human.

Abstract

The authors recorded cerebral-evoked responses elicited by direct stimulation of the human lateral spinothalamic tract (LST) during percutaneous cordotomy to investigate central conduction of noxious stimuli. These responses consisted of four negative potentials, peak latency being 3.8 (N1), 8.4 (N2), 12.2 (N3) and 21.9 (N4) ms respectively. N1 showed wide… (More)
