3) and to the coeruleus–subcoeruleus complex before continuing their ascent within the spinothalamic tract. Hence nociceptive stimuli can activate sympathetic outflow [123]. Complaints of painful sensations are widespread in sPD and, combined with other clinical signs, can precede the classical motor symptoms [124–127]. lular portions of the adjoining reticular formation, and noradrenergic neurons of the coeruleus–subcoeruleus complex (A6 and A7 groups) [19,20,44]. 2a). The level setting nuclei generate long and poorly myelinated descending axons.

An intact level setting system temporarily inhibits the conduction of incoming pain signals while placing the organism’s motor neurons in a heightened state of preparedness in fight-orflight situations [128–132]. During the first two neuropathologic stages, LP is usually found in olfactory areas, portions of the PNS and ENS, spinal cord, and lower brainstem. The pathologic process does not appear to have as its point of departure the substantia nigra [95]. retic. form. / coeruleus-subcoer. 2a concerning the components of the limbic circuit.
