Antinociceptive effect of morphine microinjections into the spinal trigeminal subnucleus oralis.

Abstract

We analysed the effects of morphine microinjections (0.2 microliter) into the subnucleus oralis (SNO), i.e. the rostral division of the spinal trigeminal nucleus, on the formalin test adapted for orofacial pain.
