  4. 4. Molecular mechanisms of synaptic transmission and plasticity in spinal sensory pathways

    Author : Max Larsson; Neurofysiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neurophysiology; neuropsychology; Neurology; electron microscopy; synaptic plasticity; synapse; pain; spinal cord; hyperalgesia; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : An intense, potentially tissue-damaging (noxious) stimulus may lead to enhanced pain sensation of subsequent noxious stimuli (hyperalgesia) and to the perceiving of innocuous stimuli as painful (allodynia). This is thought to result to a large extent from strengthening of synapses established by primary afferent fibers onto spinal cord dorsal horn neurons. READ MORE
