We analyzed threshold, chronaxy and parameters of the potential of the dorsal surface (PDP) of the spinal cord (SC) in Wistar rats with experimental diabetes mellitus (DM) and intact animals. We found a decrease in the excitation threshold by 41.4% (P < 0.05), and an increase in chronaxia by 9.5% (P < 0.01), an increase of the amplitude of the N3-component by 15.8% (P < 0.05), and an increase in the duration of the afferent peak by 4.5 % (P < 0,05) and the N2-component by 10.9% (P < 0.01) responsively. We conclude that the metabolic changes under DM lead to modification of activity of the afferent pathways and interneuron pool of SC.

Keywords: diabetes mellitus, interneuronal pool, potential ofthe dorsal surface of the spinal cord.
