The Osler Lecture: Can Neuroimaging help us 'see' pain?

This lecture is part of the Alumni Weekend. Oxford Medical Alumni has a limited number of free tickets for this lecture for students/staff in the Medical Sciences Division.

Everyone feels pain. Acute pain is the body’s warning system: it’s good. Chronic pain is the system gone wrong and one of the world’s largest 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.
