Studying molecular mechanisms of chronic pain has been an important focus of pain research. However, the nature and plasticity of neural circuits that mediate the sensory and emotional components of pain are still enigmatic. This conference organized by CellNetworks members Prof. Dr. Rohini Kuner and Prof. Dr. Herta Flor (Heidelberg Pain Consortium) will focus on interrogating, discussing and debating structural and functional understanding of circuits and networks underlying sensory and affective components of pain and their modulation by circumstances which induce structural reorganization and functional plasticity, including disease states, negative emotions and stress.
