Primary sensory neurons respond to peripheral stimulation and project to the spinal cord. Specifically, the population of neurons which respond to damaging stimuli terminate in the superficial layers of the dorsal horn. Therefore, the dorsal horns constitute the first relay site for nociceptive fibre terminals which make synaptic contacts with second order neurons. It has recently become clear that the strength of this first pain synapse is plastic and modifiable by several modulators, including neuronal and non-neuronal regulators, and studies on the fundamental processes regulating the plasticity of the first pain synapse have resulted in the identification of new targets for the treatment of chronic pain. This book will be of interest to a wide readership in the pain field.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This book, based on the concept that the `first sensory synapse between the central terminals of primary sensory neurons and dorsal horn neurons in the spinal cord is plastic and modifiable,' centers around the concept of pain ... . intended for all individuals interested in pain research, which would include PhD students, postdoctoral scientists, and academics. ... drug discovery teams in industry would also find this of interest. ... the book will serve an important role in the evolution and understanding of pain medicine." (Joseph I. Sirven, Doody's Review Service, April, 2010)
