Infants who do not receive analgesics while undergoing treatment and tests in neonatal intensive care could have permanently altered future responses to anxiety, pain and stress in adulthood, a new study reports.
The toxic sting from scorpions acts as an analgesic, rather than pain stimulant, in grasshopper mice, new research finds.
Researchers find the opioid system responds to social rejection, not just physical pain.
New research finds the pain of social rejection might not prompt the same brain response as physical pain, as previously thought.
A new study supports growing evidence that the nervous system and nerve growth factor (NGF) play a significant role in arthritis. The findings also suggest reducing elevated NGF levels could be key in developing treatments for arthritis pain.
Researchers have isolated chills at a cellular level, identifying the sensory network of neurons in the skin that relays the sensation of cold. By better understanding the specific ways in which we feel sensations, scientists hope to one day develop better pain treatments without knocking out all ability to feel for suffering patients.
The findings in fruit fly larvae demonstrate the first known function for the sensory neurons and provide insights that could broaden the understanding of chronic pain syndromes in humans.
