Spinal cord evoked potentials (SCEP) elicited by simultaneous distal tibial and sural nerve stimulation were continuously recorded from the epidural space at the T9 and T12 levels of urethane anaesthetized rats before and after a unilateral incision (about 3 mm deep and 5 mm long) in the right dorsal horn of the T10-11 segments. The changes in SCEP were correlated with the increase in spinal cord water content measured 5 h after injury. In addition, the influence of serotonin (5-HT) in… CONTINUE READING
