We tested the hypothesis that noxious stimuli induce pain modulation by activation of supraspinal structures. We found that intense noxious stimuli (i.e., subdermal injection of capsaicin or paw immersion in hot water) induced profound attenuation of the jaw-opening reflex in...

alpha-Chloralose is widely used as an anesthetic in the laboratory due to its minimal effects on autonomic and cardiovascular systems, yet little is known about its mechanism of action. We examined the effects of alpha-chloralose on gamma-aminobutyric acid type A...

Hypertension afflicts 25% of the general population and over 50% of the elderly. In the present work, arterial spin labeling MRI was used to non-invasively quantify regional cerebral blood flow (CBF), cerebrovascular resistance and CO(2) reactivity in spontaneously hypertensive rats...

The purpose of this study was to determine how the history-dependent activation state of neuronal networks controls fMRI signals to incoming stimuli. Simultaneous electrophysiological and blood oxygen level-dependent (BOLD) responses were monitored during stimulation of the perforant pathway with low...
