An investigation was made into a possible contribution of saphenous nerve to altered central processing of noxious information following sciatic nerve chronic constriction (CCI) in rats. Spinal sciatic neuron spontaneous and noxious evoked activities were recorded in CCI rats, CCI rats with saphenous nerve sectioned just before the sciatic nerve constriction and sham operated rats. The results show (1) high values of spontaneous and noxious evoked activities with prolonged afterdischarges in… CONTINUE READING
