The responses of the interneurons of the thoracic segments of the spinal cord to stimulation of the intercostal and splanchnic nerves were studied on decerebrated and narcotized cats. It was established that the neurons of different layers of the gray matter (according to Rexed) differ substantially in type of afferent inputs. Cells in laminae I–III and IV are activated chiefly by somatic afferents: primarily high-threshold in laminae I–III and low-threshold in lamina IV. The neurons of lamina… CONTINUE READING
