The physiological properties of joint capsule mechanoreceptors in the ankle joint of monoarthritic chickens were studied by recording the electrical activity from single sensory afferent nerve fibres dissected from the parafibular nerve. A monoarticular arthritis was induced by the intra-articular injection of Freund's complete adjuvant which resulted in an acute inflammatory condition and a very rapid onset of destructive cartilage damage. A detailed description of the anatomy in both the… CONTINUE READING
