TRANSLATIONAL NEUROBIOLOGY OF THE PAIN SYSTEM XXIII: PROVOKE, PROBE AND MODULATE PAIN NEUROPLASTICITY

Time

18.06.2018 kl. 08.45 - 19.06.2018 kl. 16.00

Description

This is the twenty-third annual international Ph.D. course on the translational neurobiology of the pain system. The purpose of the course is to introduce different aspects of the neurobiology of the pain system and to initiate new co-operation in interdisciplinary pain research. This year the course will focus on pain and neuroplasticity and especially how to provoke, probe and modulate pain neuroplasticity in human and in animal models. Psychophysical and electrophysiological outcome measures will be in focus but complemented by various imaging techniques.

The course is arranged over two days, and participants are invited from different international laboratories. The lectures will be given by staff from Center for Neuroplasticity and Pain (Aalborg University), SMI (Aalborg University), and by invited international key scientists within the area.
