Modulation of Conditioned Fear, Fear-Conditioned Analgesia, and Brain Regional C-Fos Expression Following Administration of Muscimol into the Rat Basolateral Amygdala
Evidence suggests that gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) signalling in the basolateral amygdala (BLA) is involved in pain, fear, and fear-conditioned analgesia (FCA). In this study, we investigated the effects of intra-BLA ...
Development and characterization of a novel, anatomically relevant rat model of acute postoperative pain
Acute postoperative pain remains a significant health care issue. Development of anatomically relevant animal models of postoperative pain, with improved predictive validity, would advance understanding of postoperative ...
Differential role of anterior cingulate cortical glutamatergic neurons in pain-related aversion learning and nociceptive behaviors in male and female rats
(Frontiers Media, 2020-08-11)
Pain is comprised of both sensory and affective components. The anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) is a key brain region involved in the emotional processing of pain. Specifically, glutamatergic transmission within the ACC ...
Antinociceptive effects of the GPR55 Antagonist CID16020046 injected into the rat anterior cingulate cortex
The G-protein coupled receptor, GPR55, modulates nociceptive processing. Given the expression of GPR55 in the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), a key brain region involved in the cognitive and affective dimensions of pain, ...
