Hughes et al. (2012) have recently identified the parvalbumin‐containing inhibitory interneurons (which correspond to a subset Anatomy of pain pathways 29 of the islet cells) as a source of axoaxonic synapses on the central terminals of the Aδ D‐hair afferents, since around 80 per cent of parvalbumin axons in lamina IIi were associated with these afferents.
