Coupling of action potential activity between unmyelinated fibers in the peripheral nerve of monkey

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Bidirectional coupling of action potential activity occurs between unmyelinated fibers in the normal peripheral nerve of monkey. The site of coupling is near the cutaneous nociceptive receptor associated with one of the fibers. This coupling could be due to an electrical synapse and could provide the basis for the flare associated with the axon reflex.
