Local microinjection of GABAA receptor agonists and antagonists was used to characterize the role of GABA-mediated inhibitory processes in the nociceptive modulatory functions of the rostral ventromedial medulla (RVM) in the lightly anesthetized rat. Microinjection of selective GABAA receptor antagonists bicuculline methiodide and SR95531 produced a… CONTINUE READING
