Noradrenergic innervations of the medial prefrontal cortex mediate empathy for pain in rats via the α1 and β receptors.

Yun-Fei L, Zhang J, Wang XQ, Peng JJ, Ling BF, Liu FT, Yang F, Dong G, Yu YQ (2022) Noradrenergic innervations of the medial prefrontal cortex mediate empathy for pain in rats via the α1 and β receptors. Behav Brain Res 10:113828. doi: 10.1016/j.bbr.2022.113828

Objective: To study the roles of the locus coeruleus (LC) to medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) pathway in pain empathy in rats.

Summary: Results indicate that noradrenergic innervations in the mPFC mediate empathy for pain in rats via the α1 and β receptors.

Usage: Noradrenergic innervations of the mPFC were selectively eliminated through intra-mPFC injections of Anti-DBH-SAP.
