The Neurobiology of Pain and Itch

Meeting Topics include:
-Molecular heterogeneity of the primary afferent: a target for pain therapy
-Unraveling the dorsal horn circuits that transmit pain messages
-Distinguishing the neural circuits that cause itch from those that cause pain
-Imaging the brain: where pain and itch percepts are ultimately generated
