Morphine and somatostatin analogue reduce c-fos expression in trigeminal subnucleus caudalis produced by corneal stimulation in the rat.

Abstract

The influence of morphine and somatostatin on nociceptor-evoked activation of central trigeminal neurons and cardiovascular reflex responses was assessed in barbiturate-anaesthetized rats. Morphine or the somatostatin analogue, octreotide, was given intracerebroventricularly 20 min prior to application of mustard oil to the corneal surface. The expression… (More)
