Fifty-eight 4-day-old male rats were studied. Peripheral desensitization was induced in 36 rats by sc administration of capsaicin in increasing doses (350, 700, 1,400, 2,100, and 2,800 micrograms) on 5 consecutive days. When adult, 9 treated and 5 control rats were chronically implanted with a lateral intracerebroventricular (icv) guide cannula. This tube was used for icv capsaicin injection. Eleven treated rats and 6 controls were implanted with a hypothalamic thermode. Hypothalamic heating… CONTINUE READING
