About the Cover

The mesolimbic reward system regulates nociception. In this issue, by combining circuit-specific electrophysiological recording with chemogenetic modulation, Wang et al. demonstrate distinct changes in the firing activity of two VTA dopaminergic subpopulations during chronic pain, resulting from the alterations of KCNQ channels-mediated M-currents. Furthermore, reversal of the altered activity and M-currents in the VTA-to-NAc, but not the VTA-to-mPFC dopaminergic neurons relieves thermal hyperalgesia. The mouse in the cover image, suffering from thermal pain, is trying to escape from the fire beneath the platform. The decreased function of KCNQ channels in the VTA-to-NAc circuit (red) contributes to the behavioral response to nociception in mice. See pages 597–610.
