Anton Simulations Reveal How Pain, Epilepsy Drugs Work through Same Target Protein

If you tried to imagine two neurological conditions as different from each other as possible, epilepsy and non-headache pain would be a good choice. Epilepsy develops when nerve cells in the brain start to fire in a too-regular pattern, overwhelming normal brain activity. Pain is a matter of sensation, when damage to tissues or other causes activate pain-sensitive nerves in the skin or other peripheral parts of the body, far from the brain.
