Abstract

The effect of ischemia on the sympathetic skin response has been evaluated in a group of healthy volunteers. Sympathetic skin response elicited by an electro-tactile stimulation has an afferent Aβ fibre pathway and an efferent sympathetic postganglionic C fibre pathway. Even if 30′ ischemia was able to block tactile sensory afferent (Aβ fibres) the sympathetic skin response was still present, suggesting a concomitant activation of other levels of integration in the genesis of the sympathetic skin response.
