AIMS Both N-type and P/Q-type voltage-gated Ca2+ channels (VGCCs) are involved in the induction of long-term potentiation (LTP), the long-lasting increase of synaptic strength, in the central nervous system. To provide further information on the roles of N-type and P/Q-type VGCCs in the induction of LTP at excitatory synapses of trigeminal primary afferents(More)
AIMS Patterns of synaptic activity determine synaptic strengthening or weakening that is typically represented as long-term potentiation (LTP) and long-term depression (LTD), respectively. In the present study, we aim to test whether a conditioning stimulation of the spinal trigeminal subnucleus caudalis (Vc) induces LTP at excitatory synapses in the(More)
Neuropeptides orexin-A and -B are related to the regulation of sleep/wakefulness and feeding behaviors. Recently, the peptides have also been shown to yield antinociceptive effects in various pain models. However, it is not clear whether orexins are involved in forms of synaptic plasticity, such as long-term potentiation (LTP) and long-term depression(More)
Activated leukocyte cell adhesion molecule (ALCAM), a member of type I transmembrane immunoglobulin superfamily of cell adhesion molecule, is expressed in the surface membrane of various cell types including neurons. In the spinal cord dorsal horn (DH), the first gate for the sensory and pain transmission to the brain, the expression and function of ALCAM(More)
