Abstract

Abstract A mini-symposium (chaired by L. Chal, Australia, P. Lembeck, Austria, J. Szolcsányi, Hungary and M. Zimmermann, F.R.G.) was held in Bad Nauheim, F.R.G. on June 29, 1990, under the sponsorship of the European Neuropeptide Club, which focussed on recent advances of research on sensory peptides and mechanism of action of capsaicin. Attention was paid to both the sensory and ‘efferent’ functions of these primary afferents [1–3], to the detection of pathophysiologically relevant stimuli for their activation and to the development of new pharmacological tools for research in this field.
