Translational Pain Research: From Mouse to Man
by Lawrence Kruger, Alan R. Light
Publisher: CRC Press 2010
Number of pages: 432
Bringing together recent advances in modern neuroscience regarding genetic studies in mice and humans and the practicality of clinical trials, this volume effectively bridges the gap between basic research and patient care by humanely examining rodent models for pain associated with bone cancer, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, and cardiac episodes.

The neural crest is an embryonic population of cells found in vertebrates and has the potential to give rise to many different cell types. These derivatives range from the mesenchymal bone, to neuronal derivatives of the peripheral nervous systems.

This introduction to spiking neurons can be used in advanced-level courses in computational neuroscience, theoretical biology, neural modeling, biophysics, or neural networks. It focuses on phenomenological approaches rather than detailed models.

This review will discuss the cellular components of the nervous system first and then will consider the peripheral nervous system before discussing the Central nervous system. In the CNS we will consider the sensory systems and then motor systems.
