Quantitative analysis of dorsal horn cell receptive fields following limited deafferentation.

Abstract

1. To test the hypothesis that subtotal deafferentation of dorsal horn cells can stimulate plastic changes in their receptive fields (RFs), diffuse deafferentation of the cat hindlimb dorsal horn was produced by transection of L7 or L6 and L7 dorsal roots. The following single-unit cutaneous low-threshold mechanoreceptor RF properties were compared between… (More)
