Unmyelinated visceral afferents exhibit frequency dependent action potential broadening while myelinated visceral afferents do not.

Abstract

Sensory information arising from visceral organ systems is encoded into action potential trains that propagate along afferent fibers to target nuclei in the central nervous system. These information streams range from tight patterns of action potentials that are well synchronized with the sensory transduction event to irregular, patternless discharge with… (More)
