Environmentally-induced analgesia: age-related differences in a hormonally-mediated, nonopioid system.

Abstract

In order to study the age-related differences in analgesia produced by environmental stimuli, 3-month-old, 11-month-old, and 23-month-old rats were immersed in 6 degrees C water for 5 min. Prior to cold-water exposure, different groups of rats were injected (i.p.) with 7 mg/kg of naltrexone or saline or had adrenalectomies performed. Following cold-water… (More)
