This is a very exciting time in the field of pain research. Major advances are made at every level of analysis from development to neural plasticity in the adult and from the transduction of a noxious stimulus in a primary afferent neuron to the impact of this stimulus on cortical circuitry. The molecular identity of nociceptors, their stimulus transduction… (More)
