N-palmitoylethanolamide in the anterior cingulate cortex attenuates inflammatory pain behaviour indirectly via a CB1 receptor-mediated mechanism
(Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, 2016-12)
The neural substrates and mechanisms mediating the antinociceptive effects of the endogenous bioactive lipid, N-palmitoylethanolamide (PEA), require further investigation. We investigated the effects of exogenous PEA ...
Characterisation of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor signalling in the midbrain periaqueductal grey of rats genetically prone to heightened stress, negative affect and hyperalgesia
The stress-hyperresponsive Wistar-Kyoto (WRY) rat strain exhibits a hyperalgesic phenotype and is a useful genetic model for studying stress-pain interactions. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) signalling ...
Evidence for a role of GABAergic and glutamatergic signalling in the basolateral amygdala in endocannabinoid-mediated fear-conditioned analgesia in rats
The basolateral amygdala (BLA) is a key substrate facilitating the expression of fear-conditioned analgesia (FCA). However, the neurochemical mechanisms in the BLA which mediate this potent suppression of pain responding ...
