Abstract

The pathways, synapses and molecules involved in pain processing in the newborn are not only required to trigger repair and recuperation but are also involved in the process of forming a mature nervous system. Sensory neurons in the dorsal root ganglion and dorsal horn express a phenomenal array of molecules which contribute to their structural and functional characteristics and many of these are developmentally regulated both pre- and postnatally. In order to understand nociceptive signalling and pain in the neonate we need a clear picture of that regulation. This review concentrates on the changing expression of selected key molecules, receptors and channels in the embryo, neonate and adult, which both characterise the sensory neuron and contribute to its response to painful stimuli in normal and pathological conditions.
