The effect of spinal cord temperature on excitatory postsynaptic potentials (EPSP) and inhibitory postsynaptic potentials (IPSP) were measured by means of intracellular recordings from lumbar motoneurones of 43 cats. While body temperature and oil bath temperature were maintained between 37 and 38 degrees C, the temperature of the spinal segment under investigation was changed separately in the range between 30 and 42 degrees C. Cooling consistently produced an increase in amplitude and… CONTINUE READING
