Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the book reviews:

“This is a comprehensive book about the etiology, pathogenesis, treatment, and complications of the sensory physiology in the nervous system. … There is no doubt in my mind that this will be an outstanding reference book for years to come. I suggest it to doctors, researchers, students, fellows, physiologists, and anyone with an interest in pain research.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, August, 2014)
