Abstract: Evidence indicates that the nervous system is dramatically altered by persistent injury and by the noxious inputs produced by the injury. Although memories are usually considered positive, memories of pain are mostly unpleasant and contribute to the persistence of the pain when the original injury resolves. Understanding the neurobiological basis of these chaanges and developing selective pharmacologic approaches to blocking them should prove useful for the long-term control of pain.
