Abstract

The pattern of ir-galanin release in the spinal cord of rats with a peripheral mononeuropathy was studied. On the side of the cord ipsilateral to the nerve injury enhanced ir-galanin release was found in the superficial dorsal horn. It is probable that, after nerve injury, some primary afferent neurons spontaneously release galanin from their central terminals.
