Brief description Understanding the neural mechanisms that generate pathological pain remains one of the essential goals for the development of effective treatments for pain, chronic pain with less side effects. Lipids are able to modulate pain perception. We will determine the role of a molecule named sphingosine 1-phosphate as a basis for the development of therapies for the treatment of neuropathic pain.
