Activation of the dorsal columns is relayed to supraspinal centers, involved in pain modulation, probably via the descending fibers in the dorsolateral funiculi (DLF). The present study examines the role of the DLF in the attenuation of pain-related signs by spinal cord stimulation (SCS). Several groups of rats were subjected to nerve injury and to chronic(More)

Whether these cytokines are produced locally or spread from the inflamed colon is not known. In addition, the role of gut innervation in this upregulation is not fully understood.(More)
