Long-term potentiation (LTP) can be induced in the lateral and basolateral amygdala by stimulating synaptic afferents in the external capsule (EC). We examined the sensitivity of amygdaloid LTP to the NMDA receptor antagonist 2-amino-5-phosphonopentanoate (AP5), which is known to block LTP induction in the Schaffer collateral/CA1 synapses in the(More)
Increases in the expression of immediate early genes have been shown to occur in the lumbar spinal cord dorsal horn after peripheral inflammation. Given that the pontine parabrachial nucleus has been implicated in nociceptive as well as antinociceptive processes and is reciprocally connected with the spinal cord dorsal horn, it seems likely that peripheral(More)
