This neuron might have been a chemonociceptive neuron that was sensitized by prior noxious heat stimulation of the skin during the Central Neural Mechanisms of Itch 29 examination of other cells in that experiment. Thus its weak histamine response was in all likelihood an effect of the sensitization. III. OTHER SPINAL NEURONS EXCITED BY HISTAMINE The effects of histamine, and also other irritant and noxious chemicals, on the activity of single rat spinal neurons with unidentified projections have been studied by Carstens (31) and Jinks and Carstens (32).

002, v2 test) (Fig. 3c). Thus, taken together, the data support the conclusion that histamine-sensitive cells are distinct anatomically and physiologically, and therefore form a unique group of STT neurons. The response characteristics of 4 of the 10 histamine-sensitive lamina I STT neurons were altered following stimulation. After activation by histamine, one cell became weakly responsive to noxious mechanical stimulation (pinching with forceps), and another responded to a slow-moving brush swept across its receptive field and to punctate stimulation with a fine wire probe.
