  • Stress-induced analgesia. 

    Butler, Ryan K.; Finn, David P. (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 

    Rea, Kieran; Roche, Michelle; Finn, David P. (2007)
    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. ...
  • Validation of an air-puff passive-avoidance paradigm for assessment of aversive learning and memory in rat models of chronic pain 

    Moriarty, Orla; Roche, Michelle; McGuire, Brian E.; Finn, David P. (Elsevier, 2011-11)
