The analgesic response following cold-water swims (CWS) has been shown to be mediated through neurohormonal mechanisms and independently of opioid systems. The hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN) appears to be important in autonomic, hypophysial and medial-basal hypothalamic function. The present study examined whether lesions placed in the PVN in… CONTINUE READING
