An element of this transition is believed to reflect a loss of local GABA or glycine inhibition. Thus, block of spinal GABA A and glycine receptors yields a markedly enhanced response of these WDR neurons to Ab input and a behaviorally defined tactile allodynia. As noted above, repetitive small afferent input leads to a dorsal horn release of PGE2 which in turn reduces glycinemediated opening of the glycine receptor and leads to a reduction in this local inhibition. The net effect is a corresponding increase in excitation evoked by low-threshold afferents.

Origin of Ongoing Activity and Enhanced Terminal Responsiveness After Tissue Injury The source of these active factors may be considered in terms of their source including the following (Fig. 5): (i) Damaged cells which yield increased extracellular contents (potassium). (ii) Products of plasma extravasation (clotting factors, cellular products such as platelets and erythrocytes which release products including amines (5HT), peptides (bradykinin), and various lipidic acids (prostaglandins)). (iii) Innate immune cascade wherein given the chemoattractants present in the injury site, there will be a migration of inflammatory cells including neutrophils and macrophages.

The net effect is complexly defined by the nature of the neurons upon which the receptor is located. Inhibitory receptors on an excitatory neuron will lead to an 1 A Survey of Systems Involved in Nociceptive Processing Medulla Raphe (5HT) Fig. 9 Schematic shows bulbospinal 5HT arising from caudal raphe projects to the dorsal horn to synapse on 5HT3 cells and enhance excitability. This pathway may be activated by projections from lamina I neurons projecting to the raphe resulting in a spino-bulbo-spinal positive feedback loop inhibition of excitation.
