Abstract

Recent advances in the study of nerve pathophysiology in experimental models of nerve and spinal root injury indicate a striking parallel between the abnormal electrical behavior of sensory axons and clinical symptomatology. In conjunction with central pain processes, these pathophysiological mechanisms can account for many of the major features of neuropathic pain syndromes.
