An in-vitro Adult Mouse Muscle-nerve Preparation for Studying the Firing Properties of Muscle Afferents
Muscle sensory neurons are involved in proprioceptor signaling and also report on metabolic state and injury related events. We describe an adult mouse in-vitro muscle-nerve preparation for studies on stretch-activated muscle afferents.
