A cutting-edge collection of diverse readily reproducible techniques for dissecting the molecular mechanisms of pain transduction. These methods employ a variety of multidisciplinary approaches ranging from animal pain models and single neutron selection to in vitro single-cell mRNA amplification. The collection includes not only standard and cutting-edge methods, but also novel techniques only recently applied to pain research. The protocols follow the successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, each one offering step-by-step laboratory instructions, an introduction outlining the principle behind the technique, lists of equipment and reagents, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David B. Glick, MD, MBA (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: The book presents a collection of research tools used in pain research. The techniques cover a wide range of experimental models from animal studies to PCR techniques.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a collection of basic research techniques for the novice pain researcher. The chapters give step-by-step instructions for using a variety of experimental models. These descriptions are slightly more detailed than those normally found in the materials and methods section of a well written journal article. The fairly limited goals set by the authors are reasonably well met in most of the chapters.
Audience: The intended audience is newcomers to pain research, and a person just getting started in pain research might find the broad array of experimental techniques presented a useful introduction to the field of pain research.
Features: Each chapter covers a different technique used by pain researchers. The breadth of techniques covered is an impressive achievement. Unfortunately, some of the chapters are quite short with little more information than what the materials and methods section of a good journal article would cover, and there is significant redundancy across several of the chapters. Additionally, the editing of many of the chapters is poor with frequent spelling errors and incomplete sentences making the text hard to follow.
Assessment: This is probably a useful reference for a person trying to get a sense for the breadth of pain research. Others may find the depth of topic coverage inadequate.
