Effects of epidural compression on stellate neurons and thalamocortical afferent fibers in the rat primary somatosensory cortex.

Abstract

A number of neurological disorders such as epidural hematoma can cause compression of cerebral cortex. We here tested the hypothesis that sustained compression of primary somatosensory cortex may affect stellate neurons and thalamocortical afferent (TCA) fibers. A rat model with barrel cortex subjected to bead epidural compression was used. Golgi-Cox… (More)
