Nociceptive facilitating neurons in the rostral ventromedial medulla.

Abstract

The role of the periaqueductal gray-rostral ventromedial medulla (RVM) system in descending inhibition of nociception has been studied for over 30 years. The neural basis for this antinociceptive action is reasonably well understood, with strong evidence that activation of a class of RVM neurons termed 'off-cells' exerts a net inhibitory effect on… (More)
