C-fiber depletion results in expansion of low threshold somatosensory mechanoreceptive fields. In this study, we investigated the role of intact C-fibers in GABAA-mediated inhibition in barrel cortical neurons. We used electronically controlled mechanical stimulation of whiskers to quantitatively examine the responses of barrel cells to whisker displacements. After systemic injection of picrotoxin neuronal responses were recorded at 5 min intervals for 20 min and then at 10 min intervals for… CONTINUE READING
