“The impact of invasive experimental procedures on perceived stress and pain may be dependent on both physical and social environmental conditions. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of a physically and a socially enriched environment on the need for pain relief following Bucladesine cell line painful experimental procedures. A non-invasive method to administer analgesics post-operatively is by means of self-administration which is a feasible objective method to measure perceived pain during the post-operative recovery period. In the present study eight groups of mice housed in different conditions underwent the surgical procedure of caecal manipulation or only exposure to anaesthesia. After surgery
the mice were given the choice to self-administer Anlotinib chemical structure an analgesic available in one of their water bottles during two post-operative weeks. It was shown that socially enriched mice drank i.e. self-administered, less from the analgesic containing water than the non-enriched and socially deprived groups. Mice that underwent operation self-administered more analgesic than mice that received only anaesthesia without operation. The findings indicate that the recovery environment can contribute positively to attenuate the need for pain relief in animals submitted to invasive procedures. (C) 2010 Elsevier Inc.

“In this work, we analyzed the interpulse interval (IPI) of doublets and triplets in single neurons of three biological models. Pulse trains with two or three spikes originate from the process of sensory mechanotransduction in neurons of the locust femoral nerve, as well as through spontaneous activity both in the abdominal motor neurons and the caudal photoreceptor of the crayfish. We show MI-503 Epigenetics inhibitor that the IPI for successive
low-frequency single action potentials, as recorded with two electrodes at two different points along a nerve axon, remains constant. On the other hand, IPI in doublets either remains constant, increases or decreases by up to about 3 ms as the pair propagates. When IPI increases, the succeeding pulse travels at a slower speed than the preceding one. When IPI is reduced, the succeeding pulse travels faster than the preceding one and may exceed the normal value for the specific neuron. In both cases, IPI increase and reduction, the speed of the preceding pulse differs slightly from the normal value, therefore the two pulses travel at different speeds in the same nerve axon. On the basis of our results, we may state that the effect of attraction or repulsion in doublets suggests a tendency of the spikes to reach a stable configuration.
