Genotype-dependent responsivity to inflammatory pain: the role of TRPV1 in the periaqueductal grey
The ability to experience pain is essential for survival, and to prevent potential tissue damage upon exposure to noxious stimuli. The periaqueductal grey - rostral ventromedial medulla – dorsal horn of the spinal cord ...
Regulation of fear, anxiety and cognition in the presence or absence of pain by peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors
(NUI Galway, 2019-06-07)
Fear/anxiety and pain modulate one another reciprocally, but the neurobiological mechanisms that underlie this interaction are not completely understood. Fear-conditioned analgesia (FCA) is pain suppression upon exposure ...
The role of the endocannabinoid system in the emotional modulation of pain
(NUI Galway, 2018-09-06)
Fear-conditioned analgesia (FCA) is the robust suppression of pain that occurs upon reexposure to a context previously paired with an aversive stimulus. FCA is mediated by activation of the descending inhibitory pain ...
