This book is based on the proceedings of a Symposium on the “International Advanced Workshop on Brain/Pain Research: from Molecules to Mind” held from April 30 to May 2, 2001 in Xi’an, China. The papers in this book will help readers to obtain an overview of our current understanding of pain, with and emphasis on recent advances and future research directions. The symposium and this book are indeed very much in accordance with the guiding principles of the International Association for the Study of Pain, which are principally to foster pain research. Management, education and communication.
