The periaqueductal grey can differentially control A- vs. C-nociceptor-evoked spinal reflexes and deep spinal dorsal horn neuronal responses. However, little is known about the control of A- vs. C-fibre inputs to lamina I and the lateral spinal nucleus, and how this correlates with the control of deeper laminae. To address this, the laminar distributions of(More)
This study was designed to determine the organization of nociceptive inputs with different behavioral significance into spinal-brainstem circuits in the rat. Induction of Fos protein was used to localize spinal dorsal horn and hypothalamic neurons activated by noxious heating of the hind paw dorsum at rates known to preferentially activate C- or A-heat(More)
The development of two monoclonal antibodies for use as second antibodies in immunocytochemistry is described. The antibodies are produced by mouse X mouse hybrid myelomas, and are both of the IgG type. The two antibodies, RB23 and ND13, were used to detect neurophysin by three-step peroxidase-antiperoxidase (PAP) immunostaining, and were "internally(More)
