Main description:

This volume contains experimental approaches that are currently revolutionizing our understanding of the neurobiology of pain. The chapters cover many cutting-edge methods including the identification of gene expression profiles, transcriptomes or translatomes, from individual cells or defined groups of cells in rodents and primates; the electrophysiological investigation of human tissues, such as human dorsal root ganglion neurons; ways to assess modality response profiles of neurons using calcium imaging in vitro and in vivo; and somatosensory behaviors in rodents using high-speed videography and machine learning. In the Neuromethods series style, the chapters include detailed advice from specialists to obtain successful results in your laboratory.

Cutting-edge and comprehensive, Contemporary Approaches to the Study of Pain: From Molecules to Neural Networks is a valuable resource for scientists and researchers interested in making impactful contributions to our understanding of pain.
