Serotoninergic projections to the spinal dorsal horn are implicated in the modulation of nociceptive transmission. However, morphological evidence indicating that serotoninergic projection fibers make synapses on nociceptive neurons in the medullary dorsal horn is still meager. Thus, we examined whether axonal varicosities with serotonin (5-HT)-like immunoreactivity (5-HT-LI) might make synapses on nociceptive projection neurons in the caudal spinal trigeminal nucleus (Vc) of the rat… CONTINUE READING
