Block of NMDA and non-NMDA receptor activation results in reduced background and evoked activity of central amygdala neurons in a model of arthritic pain.

Abstract

The latero-capsular division of the central nucleus of the amygdala (CeA) is now defined as the 'nociceptive amygdala' because of its high content of neurons activated exclusively or preferentially by noxious stimuli. Multireceptive (MR) neurons that respond to innocuous and, more strongly, to noxious stimuli become sensitized in arthritis pain. This form… (More)
