Exploring Chronic Pain
In this 3-hour, live online class, we explore the fundamental neuroscience of chronic pain and its practical implications for working with it. An up-to-date neuroscientific approach to pain will be explored and contrasted with the common, outdated, tissue-based approach that is prevalent throughout culture and healthcare. Students will learn the latest in the neuroscience of pain, with particular emphasis on the difference between nociception and pain, the process of descending modulation, and the role of psychosocial influences on chronic pain. Available to anyone.
