Skin blood flow on the rat’s paws using laser Doppler flowmeter, electrical activity of the heart (ECG) and respiration were measured simultaneously. The signals were recorded for 20 minutes, both before and after denervation, at core temperature 37°C and 38.5°C, that was maintained constant during the recordings. Spinal nerve fibres, at the level L3-L4, were transected. Experiments were performed on 15 adult Wistar rats under general anaesthesia. The oscillations in the measured signals were… CONTINUE READING
