A previous study has also found that IL-18 is increased in microglia in the trigeminal spinal subnucleus caudalis after peripheral nerve injury, suggesting a possible role of IL-18 in orofacial neuropathic pain (29).
Of all others, the caudal central subnucleus (CCN), which controls the levator palpebrae superioris muscle, exists in the center area of the midbrain and dominates the bilateral elevation of the eyelids [7, 8] (Figure 5).
