Re: Amphetamine and Pain: pain reception dysfunction and psychopathology

Like Kunga Kanga Dorji pointed out, there are also other possibilities, neurochemistries, etc, involved.

In this post, I am focusing on Substance P only, for learning purposes.

Please leave room for learning in my post.

..Substance P was elevated in the cortex over the basal ganglia and decreased in basal forebrain..
If the pain of social defeat increases Substance P,

and Substance P arouses the RAGE system,

and ADHD medication inhibits RAGE system,

does ADHD medication inhibit pain?

(0:13)...the agony of defeat
