Differential ascending projections of temporomandibular joint-responsive brainstem neurons to periaqueductal gray and posterior thalamus of male and female rats.

Abstract

Several craniofacial pain conditions, including temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJDs), are more prevalent in women than men. The basis for sex differences in deep craniofacial pain is not known. The present study compared the magnitude of ascending projections from temporomandibular joint (TMJ)-responsive neurons in trigeminal brainstem with the… (More)
