73 Axons descending from LC modulate nociceptive transmission in dorsal horn primarily via release of NE and activation of postsynaptic α2 -adrenergic receptors. The role of NE in this pathway explains the analgesic effects of tricyclic antidepressants and clonidine. GABAergic and enkephalinergic interneurons in the dorsal horn also provide local suppression of pain transmission. 74 Unlike the other senses, pain has important subjective and emotional components.
