Encoding of tensile stress and strain during stretch by muscle mechano-nociceptors.

Abstract

Groups III and IV muscle mechano-nociceptors (MNs) can be stimulated during noxious stretch, as may occur during hyperextension of a joint. However, the mechanical state (characterized by stress and strain) encoded by MNs during stretch has not previously been determined. The current study used an ex vivo gracilis muscle-nerve preparation in a rat model to… (More)
