  2. The cellular and molecular basis of direction selectivity of Aδ-LTMRs.

    Cell 159(7):1640 (2014) PMID 25525881 PMCID PMC4297767

    The perception of touch, including the direction of stimulus movement across the skin, begins with activation of low-threshold mechanosensory neurons (LTMRs) that innervate the skin. Here, we show that murine Aδ-LTMRs are preferentially tuned to deflection of body hairs in the caudal-to-rostral ...
  3. Delta opioid receptors presynaptically regulate cutaneous mechanosensory neuron input to the spinal cord dorsal horn.

    Neuron 81(6):1312 (2014) PMID 24583022 PMCID PMC4072501

    Cutaneous mechanosensory neurons detect mechanical stimuli that generate touch and pain sensation. Although opioids are generally associated only with the control of pain, here we report that the opioid system in fact broadly regulates cutaneous mechanosensation, including touch. This function i...

  12. The functional organization of cutaneous low-threshold mechanosensory neurons.

    Cell 147(7):1615 (2011) PMID 22196735 PMCID PMC3262167

    Innocuous touch of the skin is detected by distinct populations of neurons, the low-threshold mechanoreceptors (LTMRs), which are classified as Aβ-, Aδ-, and C-LTMRs. Here, we report genetic labeling of LTMR subtypes and visualization of their relative patterns of axonal endings in hairy skin an...
