NO synthase (NOS) is largely distributed in the superficial and deep laminae of the dorsal horn as well as in dorsal root ganglion cells. It has been proposed that nitric oxide (NO) participates in the transmission of sustained, and possibly brief, nociceptive, inputs at the spinal level. The aim of this study was to check the ability of in vivo electrochemical monitoring of NO within the dorsal horn of the lumbar spinal cord (L3-L4 level) of chloral hydrate anesthetized or decerebrated… CONTINUE READING
