Editorial Reviews

"A handbook bringing together the diverse aspects of perception and cognition as they affect the experiences of touch and pain. The 14 contributors comprehensively survey all research on touch and consider topics in the psychophysics of tactile perception, somatosensory cortex and tactile perceptions, nociception and pan, the mechanisms and measurement of pain, and pathological pain and its principles of assessment and management. Includes statistical tables and graphs."--SCITECH BOOK NEWS"Pain and Touch...is an exceptional book...for the outstanding collection of authors to present reviews that provide considerable depth of coverage...The coverage is scholarly and the emphasis is on very recent findings, making this book ideal for advanced graduate students, faculty, and investigators in psychology and medical fields." --CHOICE"This text provides the knowledge required to view pain as a concept in and of itself rather than merely a compilation or extension of nociceptive events. It is an up to date, authoritative work by world renowned experts carefully shepherded by a careful, knowledgeable volume editor."--Somatosensory & Motor Research
