Study Shows Brain Mechanisms Have Potential to Block Pain and Relieve Anxiety
A research team headed by Dr. Neugebauer recently investigated how some mechanisms
in the brain contribute to pain. His study, “Amygdala group II mGluRs Mediate the
Inhibitory Effects of Systemic Group II mGluR Activation on Behavior and Spinal Neurons
in a Rat Model of Arthritis Pain,” was published recently by the journal Neuropharmacology.
Mariacristina Mazzitelli, a TTUHSC research assistant and Ph.D. candidate, is the study’s lead author.
