    Fuxing Zhang

    Mol Pain 4:15. 2008
    ..Our results provide strong evidence that nerve injury primarily activates microglia in the spinal cord of adult mice, and pain-related cortical plasticity is likely mediated by neurons...

    Long Jun Wu
    Department of Physiology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto Centre for Study of Pain, University of Toronto, 1 King s College Circle, Toronto, Ontario M5S 1A8, Canada
    Mol Pain 4:40. 2008
    ..The present study provides the first evidence linking enhanced presynaptic glutamate release in the ACC to behavioral sensitization caused by peripheral inflammation...

    Susan S Kim
    Department of Physiology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto Centre for the Study of Pain, ON, Canada
    Mol Brain 4:6. 2011
    ..These findings reveal novel roles of the ACC in anxiety disorders, and provide a new therapeutic target for the treatment of anxiety disorders...
  4. pmc DREAM (downstream regulatory element antagonist modulator) contributes to synaptic depression and contextual fear memory
    Long Jun Wu
    Department of Physiology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto, 1 King s College Circle, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
    Mol Brain 3:3. 2010
    ..By contrast, sensory responses to noxious stimuli were not affected. Our results demonstrate that DREAM plays a novel role in postsynaptic modulation of the NMDA receptor, and contributes to synaptic plasticity and behavioral memory...
  5. pmc Sexual attraction enhances glutamate transmission in mammalian anterior cingulate cortex
    Long Jun Wu
    Department of Physiology, University of Toronto, 1 King s College Circle, Toronto, Ontario M5S 1A8, Canada
    Mol Brain 2:9. 2009
    ..Our results present direct evidence of the critical role of the ACC in sexual attraction, and long-term increases in glutamate mediated excitatory transmission may contribute to sexual attraction between male and female mice...
