    Abstract

    Chronic pain after surgery is a frequent problem and difficult to treat. Persisting and chronic pain can be the result of the malfunctioning of nociceptive mechanisms; both ascending and descending pathways can, individually, attribute to chronic pain development. However, existing methodology does not discriminate between ascending and descending mechanisms. Here, we present psychophysical methods which could help improve the understanding of nociceptive malfunction in persistent post-surgical pain.
