Linda Watkins, discoverer of the implications of glial-neuronal interaction in amplifying ascending nociception at the level of the dorsal horn, in 2001.
From outright disbelief and accusations of being "glia-centric" in the beginning, she has gotten many a nod from many researchers since; now, understanding glia-neuronal mechanisms, in particular microglial-neuronal-glial interactions, has become a very hot topic in pain research.
Some of her papers are stored here.
