Substantia gelatinosa neurons in the medullary dorsal horn: An intracellular labeling study in the rat.


Morphologic features and electrical membrane properties of neurons in the substantia gelatinosa (SG) of the caudal spinal trigeminal nucleus (the medullary dorsal horn; MDH) were examined in the rat. Intracellular recording and biocytin-injection combined with histochemical staining were performed in horizontal slices. Twenty-four SG (lamina II) neurons… (More)
