Involvement of the periaqueductal gray in the descending antinociceptive effect induced by the central nucleus of amygdala

Physiol Res. 2018 Aug 16;67(4):647-655. Involvement of the periaqueductal gray in the descending antinociceptive effect induced by the central nucleus of amygdala Nora BOURBIA, Antti PERTOVAARA. Abstract Here we studied whether descending control of mechanical nociception by glutamate in the central nucleus of the amygdala (CeA) of healthy control animals is induced by amygdaloid NMDA […]
