Being aware of and discriminating between different types of cues through the somatosensory system is a critical function for interpreting the internal and external world and for protection from tissue damage. Upon activation by a diverse set of chemical, thermal or mechanical stimuli, primary sensory neurons in the dorsal root ganglion relay this information through their central terminations onto neurons located in the dorsal horn of the spinal cord. The dorsal horn of the spinal cord plays a critical role for discriminating different stimuli as well as processing distinct modalities of innocuous and noxious sensation.

Using single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA seq) to classify sensory neurons in the mouse dorsal horn and DRG allowed the detection and classification of the respective neuron populations. This essential knowledge will function as a foundation for all future investigations as it allows the question of how a particular sensory stimulus is processed on a cellular level to be addressed.
