Abstract

Abstract Small cutaneous nerve branches, cutaneous nerves, and dorsal roots in cats and rats were deliberately injured by local pressure, stretching, teasing, or sectioning. The discharge produced by the injury was recorded directly and by the collision technique. A very brief burst of impulses followed injury in all types of nerve fiber. However no prolonged injury discharge could be produced unless the cut end was allowed to dehydrate, or the calcium level of the damaged axons was severely reduced, or sensory endings were left intact.
