Among the numerous pain control mechanisms that have been proposed, those acting at the spinal cord have been broadly studied, but little is known about how neuropeptides originating in supraspinal structures may relate to pain and analgesic mechanisms. Oxytocin (OT), in addition to its well known hormonal action, produces neuronal effects in various regions of the central nervous system. Indeed, some parvocellular neurons in the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN) are oxytocinergic and… CONTINUE READING
