Abstract

Thirty-six rats have received surgical spinal cord lesions, 7 at a thoracic and 29 at a cervical level. More than 70% of rats with lesions which involved the lateral column (spinothalamic tract) developed spontaneous dysesthesias in the contralateral limb. Only high cervical (C1-C2) lateral column lesions were followed frequently by forelimb signs. Lesions restricted to the dorsal columns were not followed by dysesthesias.
