1. In order to further characterize the role of lamina I as the source of central ascending neural pathways for thermoreception and thermoregulation, experiments were performed on anaesthetized cats to determine the quantitative response characteristics of warming-specific lumbosacral spinothalamic lamina I neurones. 2. We identified 10 neurones out of 474 that were selectively excited by cutaneous warming (Warm cells). Their thresholds were all in the range 35-37 degrees C at a baseline of 34… CONTINUE READING
