1 Previous preclinical studies have implicated alpha4beta2 and alpha7 nAChRs as potential mediators of the antinociceptive effects of (-)-nicotine hydrogen tartrate (nicotine) and other nAChR agonists; however, these studies have relied exclusively on measures of pain-stimulated behavior, which can be defined as behaviors that increase in frequency, rate, or intensity after presentation of a noxious stimulus.
