Research Summary

Animal experiments in vivo address the role of neuroactive mediators in peripheral and spinal muscle nociception, as well as the potential involvement of spinal glial cells in the development of chronic muscle pain. Further, the studies aim at comparing neurobiological mechanisms of chronic pain in a locomotor muscle with those in low back muscles.
