These experiments investigated the role of a specific thalamic nucleus in the cellular response to noxious and non-noxious inputs. Single-unit extracellular responses to peripheral noxious stimuli were recorded with glass micropipettes in the nucleus parafascicularis (Pf) of the rat under chloral hydrate anesthesia. Bipolar stimulating/recording electrodes were inserted in the nucleus ventro-postero-lateralis (VPL) of the thalamus, in areas responsive to the peripheral noxious stimulation… CONTINUE READING
