The substantia gelatinosa and Lissauer's tract play important roles in transmitting pain and possibly in the genesis of pain syndromes. Lissauer's tract is situated in the posterior part of the entrance zone of the posterior roots along the entire length of the spinal cord. Twenty-five percent of the fibers in this tract are of peripheral origin, and 75% originate from neurons of the substantia gelatinosa (Nashold and Ostdahl, 1979). After entering the spinal cord, the pain-conducting 22 CHAPTER 1 fibers fonn synapses with the neurons of the substantia gelatinosa, which contain a high concentration of opiatelike receptors.

In the sagittal plane Am has the shape of a bean; in the frontal plane it is oval or almost square. The Am has numerous connections, primarily Hippocampus (Hipp)-Greek for seahorse-or Ammon's hom is part of the hippocampal formation in the temporal lobe, which consists of the parahippocampal gyrus, Hipp, gyrus dentatus, and subiculum. The Hipp is separated from the parahippocampal gyrus by the hippocampal sulcus. Its convex lateral face is adjacent to the temporal hom and is covered by a thin layer of white matter that extends to the white substance of the subicular area.

And the pathogenesis of pain syndromes is presented in Chapter 13. Pain stimuli in the periphery are received by special receptors, nociceptors, the majority of which are polymodal since they react to different stimuli (mechanical, thermal, chemical, and others) (Zimmer- ANATOMY OF SUBCORTICAL STRUCTURES mann, 1981). It was established that the activation of cutaneous polymodal nociceptors depends on both direct effects of the stimulus and indirect effects mediated by the release of various biochemical substances.
