Abstract

In this response, I discuss the roles of the peripheral afferent drive in the maintenance of persistent pain, the concept of preemptive analgesia and the importance of the brain, the detailed involvement of which in pain is far less well understood compared to the events in the spinal cord. A comparison of pain to other sensory modalities is then made together with a discussion of learning and pain. These facets of pain are discussed in the light of treatment strategies for this condition.
