Abstract

In five cats, microgranulomas containing areas of focal demyelination were produced in the trigeminal nerve near the dorsal root entry zone. Two types of ectopic spike initiation were evoked: extra action potentials from orthodromic stimuli and prolonged high-frequency after discharges following short priming trains of antidromic or orthodromic stimuli.
