In microneurography experiments 56 unmyelinated nerve fibers were studied in the cutaneous branch of the peroneal nerve of healthy volunteers. Units were identified with the "marking" technique as mechanically and heat-responsive (CMH; n = 30), heat-responsive (CH; n = 13), or unresponsive to mechanical and heat stimulation (CMiHi; n = 13). None of the units showed spontaneous activity. These units were tested for responsiveness to iontophoresis of histamine (1 mA, 20 sec) from a small probe… CONTINUE READING
