About this book

This book summarizes the latest advances in pain research. All the chapters were contributed by speakers from Asian Pain Symposium (APS) on Acute and Chronic Pain, which was held in Taipei in 2017. Founded in Kyoto, Japan in 2000, the APS serves as a platform for scientists to present recent findings in pain research and discuss research orientation in this field. APS 2017 focused on novel strategies for pain treatment.

Written by experts from various disciplines, from molecular to functional, and from basic to clinic studies, this book is composed of 18 review articles on the physiology and pathology of pain in these research fields. Specific topics include circuitry, neurotransmitter, physiology, behavior, neuropathology, pharmacology, and the treatments for neuropathic pain disorders. The book is a valuable resource for researchers and graduate students in pain medicine and neuroscience.

About the authors

Dr. Bai Chuang Shyu is a principle investigator at the Institute of Biomedical Sciences, Academia Sinica, Taiwan. He served as the chairman of the Asian Pain Symposium, which was held in Taipei in 2017. His research focuses on the neuronal mechanisms underlying the central post stroke and information transmission in thalamocingulate circuitry in vitro. He has published more than 40 research articles in these fields.

Dr. Makoto Tominaga is a professor at the National Institutes of Physiological Sciences and National Institutes of Natural Sciences, Japan, where he leads the cell signaling division. His research focuses on regulation and function of TRP channels. Prof. Tominaga has published more than 200 articles in this field.
