AbstractClinically relieving pain is a top priority in the fields of pharmacology, health sciences, medicine, and neuroscience. With a plethora of pain-related or pain-inflicting conditions and disorders, understanding how this sensory system’s circuitry functions is proving to be more and more valuable. This review looks shines light on the role that adipose tissue and obesity can have on nociception and focuses on the interest in studying the periaqueductal gray matter.
