Coupling between unmyelinated peripheral nerve fibers does not involve sympathetic efferent fibers

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Bidirectional coupling of action potential activity between unmyelinated fibers in the normal peripheral nerve of monkey has recently been reported. Often typical C-fiber nociceptors are identified with the coupled fibers. In this study, sympathetic stimulation and sympathetic ablation experiments demonstrated that the sympathetic nervous system is not involved in this coupling.
