The aim of the present study was to investigate the spinal cord effects and sites of action of different inhaled concentrations (0.5-2%) of the anaesthetic, halothane. Simultaneous recordings were made of 3 Hz, suprathreshold (1.5 x T) electrically evoked spinal dorsal horn (DH) wide-dynamic range (WDR) neuron responses and of single motor unit (SMU… CONTINUE READING
