The cell bodies of spinal afferents, dorsal root ganglion neurons, are depolarized several millivolts, and their probability of spiking increased when axons of neighboring somata in the same ganglion are electrically stimulated repetitively. This form of neural communication has been designated cross-depolarization (CD) and cross-excitation (CE). The existence of CD and CE between somata of vagal afferents (nodose ganglion neurons, NGNs) of rats and guinea pigs was investigated by electrically… CONTINUE READING
