Pain in neonates can induce long-term changes in areas responsible for processing nociceptive stimulus [1]. Astrocytes are active in supporting and controlling neuronal signaling and in response to noxious stimuli they may undergo morphological changes, such as hypertrophy and increased expression of glial fibrillary acid protein (GFAP). We showed that rats receiving painful stimuli in the neonatal period presented changes in sensory, motor and limbic cortical areas related to nociception even… CONTINUE READING
