Researchers identify pathway that drives sustained pain following injury

Harvard Medical School

Research in mice identifies a set of neurons responsible for sustained pain and resulting pain-coping behaviors. Findings point to the existence of separate neural pathways that regulate threat avoidance versus injury mitigation Existence of separate pathways may account for failure to develop effective pain medications Study can inform new ways to gauge the efficacy of candidate pain therapies by assessing behaviors stemming from different pathways
