Lecture: ‘Seeing’ Pain

Posted: 2020/01/06 | Author: UOJO


Can Neuroimaging Help Us ‘See’ Pain?
Professor Irene Tracey, Warden of Merton College
Thursday 23 January 2020

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. 

Professor Irene Tracey is Professor of Anaesthetic Neuroscience in the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, and Pro-Vice-Chancellor at the University of Oxford. In October 2019 she became Warden of Merton College.
