1. We have recorded afferent activity from ;single fibres' dissected from the superior laryngeal nerve of anaesthetized cats.2. Units which responded to gentle mechanical stimulation of the larynx epithelium were chosen for study.3. Receptors with myelinated fibres were grouped according to their spontaneous activity. Group 1 fibres had little or no spontaneous activity: group 2 fibres had constant and continuous spontaneous activity.4. Group 1 fibres had a wide range of adaptation rates. Their… CONTINUE READING
