University Of Bath
One of five people live in constant pain, and almost everyone knows what it’s like to have pain that won’t go away . In this talk you will hear about some of the more unusual insights that neuroscience research has provided into how to reduce pain, or at least make it more bearable. Find out why you might want to consider watching the next time that you receive a needle rather than turning your head away, and what telescopes have to do with pain relief. There will be interactive elements to this talk.
Dr Janet Bultitude is a Lecturer at the School of Psychology and a member of the Centre for Pain Research at the University of Bath. She has over twelve years’ experience studying how our experience of the world can be altered by changes in the brain, and how sensations can be manipulated to aid recovery from brain disorders such as stroke. In her current research she studies changes in neural processing of sensation and movement in people with chronic pain, and how these processes can be manipulated for treatment.
