Determination of the neuroanatomical and neurochemical factors that contribute to nociception is an essential element in the study and treatment of pain. Several lines of evidence have implicated nuclei and neurotransmitters within the basal ganglia in nociception. For example, previous studies have shown that dopamine receptors in the striatum are involved in acute nociception, however, it remains to be determined if dopamine receptors in the dorsolateral striatum are involved in persistent… CONTINUE READING
