The Encyclopedia of Pain includes more than 3,000 entries and provides clear, detailed and up-to-date coverage of the current state of research, and treatment of pain. In addition, detailed essays provide in-depth information on all aspects of nociception and pain, including substrates, causes, pathophysiology, symptoms and signs, diagnoses and treatment. A thousand color figures enhance understanding of this too-little-understood topic. The book is available in print, in online only form, or in a print-online bundle.

From the book reviews:"This is a comprehensive book about the etiology, pathogenesis, treatment, and complications of the sensory physiology in the nervous system. ... There is no doubt in my mind that this will be an outstanding reference book for years to come. I suggest it to doctors, researchers, students, fellows, physiologists, and anyone with an interest in pain research." (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, August, 2014)
