Pain AND Amigdala

Luis Carlos Álvaro González
INTRODUCTION: Ageing, a common background in dementia, is usually associated with painful disorders. Nevertheless, the use of analgesics is limited due to poor communication. On the other hand, dementia lesions are placed in the nociceptive pathways. For this reason, the painful experience becomes different and distinctive for every lesional type. COURSE: The lateral nociceptive pathway (lateral thalamic nuclei and primary parietal cortex), which is in charge of the primary pain perception, is preserved in dementia...

Recent studies have suggested that abnormalities of dopamine and trace amines (tyramine, octopamine, and synephrine), products of tyrosine metabolism, may constitute the metabolic events that predispose to the occurrence of cluster headache (CH) and migraine attacks. This hypothesis is supported by the following evidences: the discovery of trace amine associated receptors (TAARs), expressed on the olfactory epithelium, amigdala, hypothalamus, periacqueductal gray, and the biochemical anomalies of dopamine and trace amines...

Morphological organization of connections of ventro-lateral (nociceptive) and dorso-lateral (analgetic) midbrain central gray (vl SGC and dl SGC), as well as of dorsal raphe nucleus (analgetic zone, Rd), with different limbic structures, responsible for the formation of various emotional states, was studied in 26 cats. The methods of electrical destruction of brain areas were used that were followed by the light and electron microscopic study of degenerating fibers and synapses. Heterogeneity of connections of above mentioned formations with different limbic structures was demonstrated...
