Inflammation Amps Up Neurite Growth, Gene Expression Involved in Heat, Cold Sensitivity

Researchers from North Carolina State University have found that inflammation increases neuronal activity, gene expression and sensory nerve (neurite) outgrowth in neurons involved in thermal – but not physical– sensations in mice. The work sheds light on the role that inflammation-induced overexpression of calcium channel genes may play in pain hypersensitivity. Full story
