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.

Saturday 21 September, 4pm

Level 2, Mathematical Institute, Woodstock Road, OX2 6GG
