1. One-hundred thirty-two neurons responsive to colorectal distension in the dorsal horn of the T13-L2 spinal segments of 35 spinalized and 7 intact, deeply pentobarbital-sodium-anesthetized rats were characterized for convergent cutaneous receptive fields, long ascending projections and responses to the intra-arterial administration of the algesic peptide bradykinin. All but 9 neurons had an identifiable excitatory cutaneous receptive field; all receptive fields were located on the lower… CONTINUE READING
