  1. 1. Spinal Acetylcholine Release : Mechanisms and Receptor Involvement

    Author : Mahinda Kommalage; Urban Höglund; Ernst Brodin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurosciences; acetylcholine release; spinal antinociception; nicotinic receptor; serotonin; GABA; Neurovetenskap; Neurology; Neurologi;

    Abstract : Impulses coming from peripheries are modified in the spinal cord and transmitted to the brain. Several neurotransmitters have been involved in the processing of impulses in the spinal dorsal horn. Acetylcholine (ACh) is one of many neurotransmitters involved in the regulation of nociception in the spinal cord. READ MORE

    Abstract : The spinal cord is an important component in the processing and modulation of painful stimuli. Nerve signals from the periphery are relayed and further conducted to the brain (nociception) in the spinal cord, and the most essential modulation of painful information (antinociception) occurs here.
