Vasoactive intestinal polypeptide produces depolarization and facilitation of C-fibre evoked synaptic responses in superficial dorsal horn neurones (laminae I-IV) of the rat lumbar spinal cord in vitro.

Abstract

The actions of vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) were investigated on superficial dorsal horn (LI-IV) neurones in longitudinal slices of the rat lumbar spinal cord in vitro. Bath application of VIP (1-2 mM) cause depolarizations which were accompanied by a lowering of the threshold for excitation of the neurone by current injection in the majority of… (More)
