Long-term stress-induced analgesia blocked by scopolamine.

Academic Article

Abstract

  • An 'opioid' form of analgesia ('long-term analgesia') was completely blocked by scopolamine. This effect of a muscarinic antagonist suggests that muscarinic cholinergic processes may play an important role in this analgesia and in other types of endogenous pain control.
