Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


1. Intracellular recordings were made from dorsal horn neurones grown in dissociated cell culture for periods of 4-12 weeks. 2. Results showed that a subpopulation of dorsal horn neurones that are likely to be involved in the processing and regulation of sensory stimuli were potently and selectively excited by ATP. 3. In dissociated cell culture, the identification and origin of dorsal hown neurones that respond to ATP were unclear.
