Early evidence has indicated the presence and involvement of specific neural systems which can inhibit the responses to painful stimuli. More recently, further advances suggest that the opiate system may interact with other systems to modulate the analgesia produced by the opiates or various stressors. Since corticosteroids were found to be elevated under the conditions of different stress-induced analgesia (SIA), there may be interactions between the pain-inhibiting systems and the… CONTINUE READING
