Are the Persistent Effects of "Gate Control" Stimulation on Nociception a Form of Generalization of Habituation that is Endocannabinoid-Dependent? Neurobiol Learn Mem. 2018 Sep 06;: Authors: Hanson A, Burrell BD Abstract Repetitive activation of non-nociceptive afferents is known to attenuate nociceptive signaling. However, the functional details of how this modulatory process operates are not understood and this has been a barrier in using such stimuli to effectively treat chronic pain. The present study tests the hypothesis that the ability of repeated non-nociceptive stimuli to reduce noc...
