Ventral root afferent and dorsal root efferent fibres in dog and human lower sacral nerve roots.

Abstract

Two pairs of wire electrodes were used to record single afferent action potentials from ventral roots and single efferent action potentials from dorsal roots of dogs and humans. A human lower sacral ventral root contained about 20 to 30% afferents among fibres with a diameter larger than 5 microns; a comparable ventral root of a dog contained about 1… (More)
