Central sensitization of nociceptive neurons in trigeminal subnucleus oralis depends on integrity of subnucleus caudalis.


Our recent studies have shown that application to the tooth pulp of the inflammatory irritant mustard oil (MO) produces a prolonged (>40 min) "central sensitization" reflected in neuroplastic changes in the mechanoreceptive field (RF) and response properties of nociceptive brain stem neurons in subnuclei oralis (Vo) and caudalis (Vc) of the trigeminal… (More)
