Effects of Stimulation of the Periaqueductal Gray and Locus Coeruleus on Postsynaptic Reactions of Cat Somatosensory Cortex Neurons Activated by Nociceptors

Abstract

In cats, we studied the influences of stimulation of the periaqueductal gray (PAG) and locus coeruleus (LC) on postsynaptic processes evoked in neurons of the somatosensory cortex by stimulation of nociceptive (intensive stimulation of the tooth pulp) and non-nociceptive (moderate stimulations of the infraorbital nerve and ventroposteromedial nucleus of the… (More)
