Unravelling the Intricacies of Somatosensation

Pain & Nociception, Publication Review|

Somatosensation, the process responsible for our perception of the world, is more mechanistically complex than it may seem. Pressure, temperature, and pain are just a few of the various parameters that most organisms use to situate and navigate themselves throughout the world. While these phenomena are well described at a functional level (i.e. the five senses), this sort of communication at the cellular level is much more involved1. Nonetheless, recent publications utilizing our systems have made considerable strides in this field, unveiling some of the mechanisms and cellular basis behind mechano- and somatosensation.
