DESCRIZIONE

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. "Synaptic Plasticity and Pain" discusses the delineation of some anatomical circuits for pain in the dorsal horn, the main players of the fast and slow transmissions at the pain synapse, how synaptic plasticity can be monitored in the dorsal horn during pain transmission, and several mechanisms and targets for chronic pain in the dorsal horn with special emphasis to neuropathic pain. The book will be of interest to a wide readership in the pain field.
