Microelectrode recordings were made from dorsal column fibres at the 12th thoracic segment in cats. Two kinds of activity were elicited by electric shocks applied on the sciatic nerve in the popliteal fossa: primary afferent activity and trans-synaptically evoked activity. The dorsal column postsynaptic (DCPS) fibres represented 9.3% of the total population of fibres studied in the fasciculus gracilis and 14.5% of those with receptors in the skin. They were found to lie between the primary… CONTINUE READING
