The endocannabinoid system in the rat dorsolateral periaqueductal grey mediates fear-conditioned analgesia and controls fear expression in the presence of nocicpetive tone
Background and purpose: Endocannabinoids in the midbrain periaqueductal grey (PAG) are involved in modulating nociception and unconditioned stress-induced analgesia, however, their role in fear-conditioned analgesia (FCA) ...
Genotype-dependent responsivity to inflammatory pain: A role for TRPV1 in the periaqueductal grey
Negative affective state has a significant impact on pain, and genetic background is an important moderating influence on this interaction. The Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) inbred rat strain exhibits a stress-hyperresponsive, ...
Supraspinal transient receptor potential subfamily V member 1 (TRPV1) in pain and psychiatric disorders
The transient receptor potential subfamily V member 1 (TRPV1) belongs to the diverse transient receptor potential (TRP) family of cation channels. It was first characterized in primary afferent fibres as a receptor for ...
Effects of direct periaqueductal grey administration of a cannabinoid receptor agonist on nociceptive and aversive responses in rats
The analgesic potential of cannabinoids may be hampered by their ability to produce aversive emotion when administered systemically. We investigated the hypothesis that the midbrain periaqueductal grey (PAG) is a common ...
