It is known that afferent neurons play a protective role in knees made unstable by transection of the anterior cruciate ligament. However, it is not known whether cutting the anterior cruciate ligament has an effect on the response of the sensory neurons that innervate the joint. In this study, the responsiveness (activation threshold and position sensitivity) of single, mechanically sensitive afferent neurons from the cat knee was evaluated by a series of extension, internal, and external… CONTINUE READING
