Pathophysiology of human nociceptor function
This chapter deals with aspects of the pathophysiology of nociceptors, mostly C nociceptors, and in the human context, it will be assumed that the pathophysiology of nociceptors in experimental animals has been studied primarily in order to contribute to the understanding of health-related issues in humans. Therefore any sizeable departures idiosyncratic to the animal condition that do not match descriptions in humans are probably of lesser relevance. This review is not intended to be all inclusive; emphasis is laid on themes that have been investigated by, or have interested the authors.
