Neurophysiology of itch

Abstract

A subset of nociceptive histamine sensitive C neurons has been demonstrated to be dedicated for transmission of itch. Histamine independent nocicpetive C nerves that are mechanosensitive are capable of transmitting itch. Central pathways are involved in itch transmission both spinally and in the brain. Chronic itch shares similar patterns to chronic pain. Both central and peripheral mediators are important in pruritus. Neurotrophic factors, particularly NGF, have a role in chronic itch.
