(Butler, R. K. & Finn, D.P. (2009). Stress-induced analgesia. Progress in Neurobiology, 88, 184-202., 2009)
For over 30 years, scientists have been investigating the phenomenon of pain suppression upon exposure to unconditioned or conditioned stressful stimuli, commonly known as stress-induced analgesia. These studies have ...
Supraspinal modulation of pain by cannabinoids: the role of GABA and glutamate
Recent physiological, pharmacological and anatomical studies provide evidence that one of the main roles of the endocannabinoid system in the brain is the regulation of ¿-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and glutamate release. ...
Modulation of stress by imidazoline binding sites: Implications for psychiatric disorders
(Taylor & Francis, 2009-07-07)
In this review, we present evidence for the involvement of imidazoline binding sites (IBS) in modulating responses to stress, through central control of monoaminergic and hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis activity. ...
6-Iodonordihydrocapsaicin was first synthesized by Giovanni Appendino at the Department of Chemical, Food, Pharmaceutical and Pharmacological Sciences (DiSCAFF), Novara, Italy, while developing a series of halogenated ...
Chronic fluoxetine treatment attenuates stressor-induced changes in temperature, heart rate, and neuronal activation in the olfactory bulbectomised rat
The olfactory bulbectomized (OB) rat is a well characterized animal model that exhibits a number of behavioural and neurochemical changes that have relevance to clinical depression. Hyperactivity in the open field is the ...
Evidence for differential modulation of conditioned aversion and fear‐conditioned analgesia by CB1 receptors
Fear‐conditioned analgesia is an important survival response mediated by substrates controlling nociception and aversion. Cannabinoid1 (CB1) receptors play an important role in nociception and aversion. However, their role ...
