Primary afferent depolarization (PAD), developing during passive movements of the ankle with a frequency of 0.14–5.0 Hz was investigated in decerebrate cats. An increase in the dorsal root potential, the amplitude of which was used to judge the intensity of PAD, was observed during both extension and flexion of the joint. Parallel with waves of the dorsal root potential, changes in amplitude of the N component of the dorsal cord potential in response to stimulation of a cutaneous nerve during… CONTINUE READING
