Serotonin (5HT) in the central nervous system has been associated with pain processing and modulation. The insular cortex (IC) plays an important role in the development and perception of the inflammatory and chronic pain. The role of the serotoninergic system in IC has not been completely studied. We used micro-dialysis in freely moving rats to determine the extracellular release of 5HT and its main metabolite (5HIAA) in the IC during an inflammatory process. Results showed an increase of… CONTINUE READING
