Electrophysiological assessment of the cutaneous arborization of Adelta-fiber nociceptors.

Little is known about the relationship between the branching structure and function of physiologically identified cutaneous nociceptor terminals. The axonal arborization itself, however, has an impact on the afferent signal that is conveyed along the parent axon to the CNS. We therefore developed electrophysiological techniques to investigate the branching… CONTINUE READING
