It has been shown previously that impulses in axons of the descending branches of myelinated afferents in rat dorsal columns may suffer a blockade of transmission along their course in the dorsal columns. This paper tests the effect of the mechanism of primary afferent depolarization on the orthodromic movement of impulses in descending dorsal column primary afferent axons originating in the L1 dorsal root. Orthodromic impulses were recorded in the L5 and 6 dorsal columns after stimulation of… CONTINUE READING
