• Animated Atlas of Nociceptive Pain

The Animated Atlas of Neuropathic Pain is a comprehensive collection of 36 animated videos and around 60 images pertaining to the perception and transmission of pain to the brain via the nociceptors and nerves, the physiology of pain transmission, biological molecules that regulate sensation of pain, types of neuropathic pain, and their treatment using drug therapy or nerve stimulation. The Animated Atlas is an excellent reference and an invaluable resource for effective presentations and lectures.
