Example text

Projection fibers to the brain • Central pain processing centers Primary Afferents and Dorsal Root Ganglia The first-order neuron is the primary afferent. It is responsible for detecting and encoding the stimulus modality and intensity. The primary afferent nerve fiber is composed of populations of axons including large myelinated, small myelinated, and unmyelinated axons. Many of the Ad and C sensory (afferent) nerve fibers innervating the viscera travel with sympathetic nerves (Figure 2-3).

The DRG neuron cell body is connected to the trunk of the axon by the glomerulus. • The DRG demonstrates unique morphology for a neural structure situated outside the blood-brain barrier. • The DRG display large (type A) and small (type B) neurons that give rise, respectively, to myelinated and unmyelinated afferent nerve fibers that project centrally (nerve roots) and peripherally (nerves). • The DRG cells display pericellular glial cells that stain for glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP).

WDR neurons receive convergent input from A and C nociceptive fibers. The presence of GABA or glycine ionophores on these terminals emphasizes that the input from large axons is under ongoing inhibitory control of a cell that is part of the nociceptive encoding pathway. • Loss of inhibitory regulation (disinhibition), as with blockade receptor antagonists (GABAA, bicuculline; glycine, strychnine), will lead to a prominent state of tactile allodynia. Regulation of glycine receptor function by PGs provides an important mechanism whereby centrally acting COX inhibitors can alter inflammatory-induced hyperpathia.
