Summary:
"The International Association for the Study of Pain defines pain as "an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage." Pain in general, and pain research in particular, is especially exciting as it brings together elements of so many disciplines.

   schema:reviewBody ""The International Association for the Study of Pain defines pain as "an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage." Pain in general, and pain research in particular, is especially exciting as it brings together elements of so many disciplines. This book includes a wealth of information on the molecular biology, anatomy, physiology, and biochemical bases of pain. Sixty-six chapters cover every major aspect of pain science, from molecular pathways to treatment of pain disorders. This book is unique in that it covers the breadth and depth of pain science, and it also integrates both basic and clinical aspects of pain. For scientists new to pain research, they will gain an excellent foundation of knowledge which will lead to new breakthroughs in therapies for pain." "The book presents the most scientific understanding for the neuroscience of pain, and covers pain pathways and mechanisms in both text and full color illustrations."--Jacket." ;
