Circadian variations in stress-induced analgesia

Stefano Puglisi-Allegra, Claudio Castellano, Alberto Oliverio

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Stress-induced analgesia, assessed in two strains of mice (C57BL/6 and SEC/1Re), presents daily or circadian variations which are related to fluctuations in the release of endogenous opioids. These fluctuations may account for differences in individual reactivity to stressful events during 24 h.
