The dorsal horn of the spinal cord is a primary receiving area for somatosensory input and contains high concentrations of a large variety of receptors. These receptors tend to congregate in lamina II, which is a major receiving center for fine, presumably nociceptive, somatosensory input. There are rapid reorganizations of many of these receptors in response to various stimuli or pathological situations. These receptor localizations in the normal and their changes after various pertubations… CONTINUE READING
