NMDA receptors and activity-dependent tuning of the receptive fields of spinal cord neurons

Abstract

AFTER peripheral nerve section, sensory neurons regenerate but do not regain their original topographical position in the skin1. Here we report that in the early stages of sciatic nerve regeneration, the cutaneous receptive fields (RFs) of dorsal horn neurons are larger than normal, reflecting the disorganized topography of the regenerated afferents. When… (More)
