  6. 11. Body’s Natural Analgesia <ul><li>Activation by physical, chemical or threat of injury. </li></ul><ul><li>Nociceptive neurons release Substance P = pain! </li></ul><ul><li>Endogenous opioids are present at brain sites </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Released during stress, pain & anticipation of pain to produce analgesia </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Endorphins and enkephalins </li></ul></ul>
