Example text

Dorsal Horn Reorganization A variety of events occur in the dorsal horn after peripheral nerve injury, which suggests altered processing wherein the response to low-threshold afferent traffic can be exaggerated. • Increased spinal glutamate release. Spinal glutamate release occurs in accord with increased spontaneous activity in the primary afferent and with the loss of intrinsic inhibition, which may serve to modulate resting glutamate secretion (see later discussion). • Non-neuronal cells and nerve injury.

Silent Nociceptors. Many C fibers are activated only by intense physical stimuli. Articular and tooth pulp C-fiber afferents, as an example, have thresholds so high that they are referred to as “silent” or “sleeping” nociceptors. • Afferents with little or no spontaneous activity. Activation occurs only with extreme physical stimuli. • The presence of algogenic products (the inflammatory or sensitizing soup) sensitizes the nerve terminal such that they become “spontaneously active” and their activity can be enhanced by relatively mild physical stimuli.

Under normal circumstances, afferent input and large A low-threshold primary afferents are under inhibitory control by local g-aminobutyric acid (GABA)–ergic and glycinergic interneurons. Some of the neurons are on the presynaptic terminal of the large (not small) afferents and on the second-order neuron. These inhibitory interneurons are often driven by large afferent input. This local circuit thus serves to regulate the excitation of the dorsal horn neurons otherwise initiated by afferent input (on the WDR neurons).
