The formalin test: A quantitative study of the analgesic effects of morphine, meperidine, and brain stem stimulation in rats and cats
TLDR
The formalin test is a statistically valid technique which has two advantages over other pain tests:: (1) little or no restraint is necessary, permitting unhindered observation of the complete range of behavioral responses; and, (2) the pain stimulus is continuous rather than transient, thus bearing greater resemblance to most clinical pain.

Classification of clinical pain descriptions by multiple group discriminant analysis
TLDR
The McGill Pain Questionnaire, which consists primarily of verbal descriptions of pain qualities, was administered to 95 patients suffering from one of eight known pain syndromes and appears to have potential value as a diagnostic technique. Expand
Treatment of occipital neuralgia by partial posterior rhizotomy at C1-3.
TLDR
Although partial posterior rhizotomy at C1-3 did not always relieve pain in the periorbital and temporal regions, this procedure did provide consistent long-term relief of severe occipital pain with minimal risk of postoperative vertigo, scalp anesthesia, or deafferentation syndrome. Expand
Abnormal pulsatile secretion of luteinizing hormone in men with epilepsy
TLDR
The relationship of pulse frequency to the nature and laterality of paroxysmal discharges makes it unlikely that endocrine abnormalities can be attributed to medication alone and strengthens the notion that temporal lobe epileptiform discharges may disrupt hypothalamic regulation of pituitary secretion. Expand
Effect of dorsal-column stimulation on gelatinosa and marginal neurons of cat spinal cord.
TLDR
The present study suggests that some of the inhibitory action of dorsal-column stimulation on nociceptive responses of cells in laminae 4 and 5 of the dorsal-horn might be sustained by a network of interneurons in or near the substantia gelatinosa and marginal layer. Expand
Selectively distributed processing of visual object recognition in the temporal and frontal lobes of the human brain
TLDR
It is shown that identical input and output parameters can engage different areas of the brain depending on the nature of the instructional set, and that the processing of complex visual knowledge is thus anatomically distributed but regionally specialized. Expand
Differential neural activity in the human temporal lobe evoked by faces of family members and friends
TLDR
Limbic structures and temporal cortex appear to participate in face recognition and in encoding the familiarity of visual experiences through differential evoked responses to familiar versus novel faces. Expand
Embolization of solitary spinal metastases from renal cell carcinoma: alternative therapy for spinal cord or nerve root compression.
TLDR
Four patients with a solitary vertebral metastasis from a renal cell carcinoma presented with acute spinal cord or nerve root compression and were decided to palliate the lesions by transarterial catheter embolization, resulting in progressive neurological improvement. Expand
Descending influences on receptive fields and activity of single units recorded in laminae 1, 2 and 3 of cat spinal cord
TLDR
It is reported that a major descending influence on many units of laminae 1,2 and 3 is excitatory and suggested that a population of small interneurons in the superficial laminaes could contribute to the descending inhibition of large dorsal horn neurons. Expand
