Abstract

Excitability of testing of single sural afferent C- and A-fibers was used to study possible presynaptic actions of substance P (SP) applied locally or systemically at the in traspinal sites of minimal threshold for their antidromic activation in anesthetized or spinalized cats. SP, applied by iontophoresis, pressure microinjection or systemically, produced dose-related reversible decreases or increases in threshold for antidromic activation of both C- and A-fibers. It was concluded that, in addition to previously shown postsynaptic actions, SP modifies excitability of intraspinal cutaneous C- and A-fibers.
