    Adv Exp Med Biol 760:74-88. 2012
    ..Here we describe a novel mechanism of loss of inhibition within the thalamus that may predispose for the development of this chronic pain and discuss a potential treatment that may restore inhibition and ameliorate pain...

    Myeounghoon Cha
    Department of Endodontics, Prosthodontics and Operative Dentistry, University of Maryland Baltimore, School of Dentistry, Baltimore, Maryland 21201, USA
    J Pain 14:260-9. 2013
    ..Although we cannot eliminate the possibility that muscimol spread to areas adjacent to ZI, these findings support our hypothesis and suggest that MCS produces antinociception by activating the incertothalamic pathway...
  3. pmc Conditioned place preference reveals tonic pain in an animal model of central pain
    Leyla Davoody
    Department of Endodontics, Prosthodontics and Operative Dentistry, Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, 650 West Baltimore Street, Baltimore, MD, USA

  4. pmc Pathological activity in mediodorsal thalamus of rats with spinal cord injury pain
    Jessica L Whitt
    Program in Neuroscience, University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland 21201, USA
    J Neurosci 33:3915-26. 2013
    ..These data support our hypothesis that SCI pain results, at least in part, from a loss of inhibition to thalamic nuclei associated with both the sensory-discriminative and emotional-affective components of pain...
  5. pmc Thalamocortical asynchrony in conditions of spinal cord injury pain in rats
    David A Seminowicz
    Department of Neural and Pain Sciences, Program in Neuroscience, University of Maryland School of Dentistry, Baltimore, Maryland 21201, USA
    J Neurosci 32:15843-8. 2012

  6. pmc Motor cortex stimulation reduces hyperalgesia in an animal model of central pain
    Jessica M Lucas
    Program in Neuroscience, University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, USA
    Pain 152:1398-407. 2011

    J Neurophysiol 103:3044-53. 2010
