Molecular Pain provides rapid and open access publications for neuroscientists who are interested in basic mechanism of pain and nociceptive at molecular and systemic levels. We promote integrative neurobiological approaches to reveal novel pain mechanisms and potential drugs targets for future treatment of chronic pain in human beings.
