Unmyelinated C-fibre responses to electrical stimulation were recorded in common peroneal, sural and tibial nerves of rabbits. Three distinct C elevations, here called C1, C2 and C3, were recorded. C2 is probably of somatic origin because it was depressed due to collision by peripheral stimulation of cutaneous receptors. The conduction velocity of C3 corresponded to that of sympathetic post-ganglionic fibres. During sympathetic trunk stimulation the A-fibre responses were not significantly… CONTINUE READING
