The Osler Lecture: Can neuroimaging help us 'see' pain?
Speaker: Professor Irene Tracey, Head of Department & Nuffield Chair in Anaesthetic Science, Fellow, Pembroke College
Everyone feels pain, it’s the body’s warning system: it’s good. Chronic pain is the system gone wrong and one of the world’s biggest medical health problems. Pain emerges from brain activity, but certain networks can also powerfully modulate the experience. Using neuroimaging, unprecedented insight to how this occurs has been obtained and will be presented.
