1. Nocigenic inhibition is the inhibition of neural, behavioral, or reflex responses to a nociceptive test stimulus produced by another, conditioning, nociceptive stimulus. The present study examines whether a natural noxious visceral stimulus, colorectal distension, used as a conditioning stimulus would inhibit neuronal or reflex responses to noxious… CONTINUE READING
