Experiments were conducted in anesthetized cats to determine if spinal neuronal responses to activation of renal receptors are tonically modulated by descending spinal pathways. Eighty-seven thoracolumbar spinal neurons with renal and somatic input were tested for responses to occlusion of the renal vein, renal artery, and ureter before, during, and after cooling the spinal cord rostral to the recording site. Cooling increased the number of neurons that responded as well as the magnitude of the… CONTINUE READING
