Ectopic impulse generation in focally demyelinated trigeminal nerve

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

33 Scopus citations


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.
