The classification of cells in the rostral ventromedial medulla (RVM) is based on the response pattern to noxious tail heat: on-cell activity increased, off-cell activity decreased, and activity of neutral cells is unaffected by noxious heat tail stimulation. It is generally assumed that on-, off- and neutral cells respond equally to noxious stimulation applied anywhere on the body surface, but so far this assumption has not been systematically examined. In the present study the effects of… CONTINUE READING
