Flexion reflex elicited by ventral root afferents in the cat.


To investigate the physiological role of ventral root afferent fibers, the ventral root was stimulated in spinal cats in an attempt to elicit the flexion reflex, a common nociceptive spinal reflex. The flexion reflex was elicited by stimulating the distal stump of the cut L7 or S1 ventral root and recorded from the proximal stump of the cut S1 ventral root… (More)
