We describe here automatic selection method to retrieve spontaneous cord dorsum potentials from the spiral cord in the anesthetized cat. Previous studies have indicated that some of these potentials appear synchronized in several spinal segments and are generated by the activation of specific sets of dorsal horn neurons. Since their synchronization is affected in a characteristic manner by acute peripheral nerve and spinal lesions, as well as during capsaicin-induced skin inflammation, they can be used to describe the patterns of functional interconnectivity between specific sets of dorsal horn neurons, which makes them of potential clinical interest.
