The Kandel book lacks any decent treatment of pain and is not a neuroanatomy book.
Martin is not bad as a descriptive text but, again, will not help with the specific
topic.  Carpenter and Sutin is extremely detailed but not as up to date as others.

I suggest Kiernan's neuroanatomy paperback as a scrupulous, up-to-date, and readable text 
with a good treatment of the subject specified.
