Brain-derived TNFalpha mediates neuropathic pain

Brain Research

Nov 5, 1999

Tracey A IgnatowskiRobert N Spengler

Abstract

Neuropathic pain is a chronic pain state that develops a central component following acute nerve injury. However, the pathogenic mechanisms involved in the expression of this central component are not completely understood. We have investigated the role of brain-associated TNF in the ev...read more

Spinal Cord Neoplasms

Spinal cord neoplasms affect the spinal cord and arise from either within the spinal cord or from extramedullary structures that surround the spinal cord. The cancer can arise from different cell types such as the meninges surrounding the spinal cord, glial or nerve cells within the CNS. Here is the latest research on spinal cord neoplasms.

Limbic System

The limbic system is comprised of several different parts of the brain involved in emotion, motivation, learning, and memory. Discover the latest research on the limbic system here.

Neuromodulation

Neuromodulation refers to a physiological process in which a neuron uses chemical(s) to regulate a variety of neuronal populations. Discover the latest research on neuromodulation here.

Parkinson's Disease: Animal Models

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that affects movement. This feed focuses on animal models used for Parkinson's disease research.

Pain & Addiction

Chronic pain and addictive disorders present significant medical and public health problems; both are underdiagnosed and inadequately treated. The cooccurrence of pain and addiction adds complexity to the assessment and treatment of both disorders. Discover the latest reserch on pain and addiction here.

Formation of Synapses and Circuits

Synapses are crucial for the transmission of information within neural circuits. These specialized intercellular junctions are the basis for the formation of complex networks. Formation of these synapses involve numerous steps that are essential for transmission of information. Here is the latest research on formation of synapses and circuits.

Functional Connectivity Networks

Functional connectivity networks represent specific patterns of synchronous activity and differ between healthy subjects, stages of consciousness and across disease. Discover the latest research on functional connectivity networks here.

Peripheral Nervous System Diseases

Peripheral nervous system diseases cover a wide spectrum of disease affecting the peripheral nerves, with the most common being diabetic neuropathy. Discover the latest research on peripheral nervous system diseases here.

Pain Signaling

Pain signaling pathways involve many molecular components that could potentially be targets for pharmacotherapeutic interventions. Discover the latest research on nociception and signal transduction through nocireceptors here.

Deep Brain Stimulation

Deep Brain Stimulation is a neurosurgical procedure that uses a neurostimulator to stimulate specific regions of the brain for treatment of movement disorders. Here is the latest research.
