SCN, hippocam-pus, piriform cortex, and cerebellum (Figure 2 and datanot shown). Lower levels ofmPer3RNA were detectedin neocortex. The sense (control) riboprobe had a repro-ducible, robust, anatomically specific pattern of hybrid-ization that did not overlap with the antisense probe.Specifically, the sense probe labeled the supraoptic andparaventricular nuclei of the hypothalamus (
The paraventricular axis is interesting and could relate to chronic pain. It also has some linkage to schizophrenia and possibly low latent inhibition, IIRC. yes.It is the area I thought. How very curious. The pain drug developed in the 70's was Thalidomide, a disaster in Britain as the Ramones sang about and the American doctor who stopped it recieved a Presidential medal and was then tasked with reforming our system of clinical trials that we use today. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/31009420
