This is a comprehensive review of all aspects of nociceptor function, including the structure of nociceptor endings, their neurochemistry, and evolutionary considerations. It deals with the functional properties of nociceptors innervating different organs and the biophysical mechanisms underlying the transduction process in nociceptors. There are sections on how nociceptor function is modified by nerve injury and regeneration and on its physiopathology.
