In chloralose-anaesthetized cats, the somata of cervical dorsal root ganglion cells with non-myelinated peripheral branches (group IV units) were impaled with glass micropipettes containing a 10% solution of horseradish peroxidase (HRP). The units were identified by their conduction velocity in the peripheral nerve (less than 2.5 m/s). After identification, HRP was injected iontophoretically into the soma. No significant correlation was found between the conduction velocity and cross-sectional… CONTINUE READING
