  4. Itch

    Mechanisms and Treatment

    Edited by E. Carstens, Tasuku Akiyama

    Series: Frontiers in Neuroscience

    Advances in itch research have elucidated differences between itch and pain but have also blurred the distinction between them. There is a long debate about how somatic sensations including touch, pain, itch, and temperature sensitivity are encoded by the nervous system. Research suggests that each...

  5. Neurobiology of Chemical Communication

    Edited by Carla Mucignat-Caretta

    Series: Frontiers in Neuroscience

    Intraspecific communication involves the activation of chemoreceptors and subsequent activation of different central areas that coordinate the responses of the entire organism—ranging from behavioral modification to modulation of hormones release. Animals emit intraspecific chemical signals, often...

  7. Spike Timing

    Mechanisms and Function

    Edited by Patricia M. DiLorenzo, Jonathan D. Victor

    Series: Frontiers in Neuroscience

    Neuronal communication forms the basis for all behavior, from the smallest movement to our grandest thought processes. Among the many mechanisms that support these functions, spike timing is among the most powerful and—until recently—perhaps the least studied. In the last two decades, however, the...
