Immunohistochemical profiles of spinal lamina I neurones retrogradely labelled from the nucleus tractus solitarii in rat suggest excitatory projections.

Abstract

Three morphologically distinct types of lamina I neurones, fusiform, flattened and pyramidal, project from the spinal cord to the caudal part of the nucleus tractus solitarii in the rat, and may represent a pathway whereby peripheral stimuli can modify autonomic functions. The neurochemistry of these three types of projection neurones was investigated using… (More)
