Ketamine attenuates glutamate-induced mechanical sensitization of the masseter muscle in human males

Abstract

The purpose of the present study was to determine whether glutamate-induced mechanical sensitization of the masseter muscle in human volunteers involves activation of peripheral N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptors. Healthy male volunteers (n=18) participated in this randomized, two-session study. During each session, the volunteers received two injections… (More)
