Microelectrode recordings were made in peroneal skin nerve fasicles in 8 patients with functionally complete spinal cord lesions mainly at cervical levels. Spontaneous neural activity was sparse but deep breaths, abdominal pressure over the bladder and mechanical and electrical skin stimuli applied caudal to the spinal transection induced bursts of neural impulses after a latency of 0.5 to 1 s. The efferent discharges were conducted with a velocity of 0.75 m/s and were followed by cutaneous… CONTINUE READING
