3) The process of transmission describes synaptic transfer of noxious impulses from primary afferents to second-order cells in the dorsal horn. (4) Modulation describes inhibitory and facilitory effects of spinal interneurons on noxious transmission. (5) Descending inhibition refers to descending brainstem, midbrain, and cortical inhibitor nerve endings that supress pain transmission. (6) Cortical perception includes neocortical sites of pain localization and limbic centers responsible for emotional and suffering components of pain.

70 Brain imaging techniques have also been employed to characterize cortical sites of pain modulation. μ-opioid receptors are involved in regulating the experience of pain in specific thalamic and cortical regions. Zubieta and coworkers71 utilized PET scanning with the selective μ-receptor agonist carfentanil to evaluate sites of opioid uptake. They also studied whether opioid suppression of masseter muscle pain reduced metabolic activation in specific regions of the brain. They found that carfentanil binding at μ receptors uniquely reduced metabolic activity in cortical regions responsible for sensory and affective dimensions of pain.
