About this book
Molecular Pain is the first book to focus on molecular and synaptic mechanisms for pain transmission, modulation and plasticity. Unlike traditional textbooks about pain, this book covers recent progress in neuroscience and relates these developments to the basic mechanisms of chronic pain. The book also discusses current pain medicine and alternative pain treatments such as acupuncture.
Edited by a leading neuroscientist and pain researcher, Molecular Pain includes contributions by more than thirty international science experts from eight different countries. The book’s thirty-four chapters cover a wide spectrum of pain, analgesia, and neuroscience, and present chronic pain as a major health concern and a dynamic area of research.
Complete with 165 illustrations, Molecular Pain is a concise and comprehensive review of recent progress in the field of pain. This book is an invaluable reference work and textbook for advanced undergraduate students, graduate and medical students, and researchers in neuroscience, pain, animal behavior, anesthesiology and medicine.
