UNLABELLED Peripheral nerve injury increases the chemosensitivity and excitability of injured afferents, resulting in ectopic activity arising from within dorsal root ganglia. Studies of dissociated sensory ganglion neurons in vitro suggest afferent somata might be sensitized by persistent inflammation. However, it is unknown whether this inflammation-induced sensitization is manifest in somata within the intact ganglia. To explore this possibility, intracellular electrophysiologic recording… CONTINUE READING
