Figure 1. Nerve injury increases extracellular glutamate by down-regulation of GLT-1, and this inhibits evoked glutamate release by enhanced presynaptic inhibition. The increased glutamate concentration results in increased tonic LC activity that impairs PFC-related cognitive function, and the reduced evoked glutamate release diminishes noradrenergic response important to descending inhibition of pain.
