Chronic pain: mechanisms and research
Phil will first present an introduction to the mechanisms of chronic pain that includes discussion on peripheral and spinal central sensitisation, higher centre and descending pain modulation.
The second part of the lecture will focus on the unique mechanisms of visceral pain. Here Phil will discuss the influence of the stress via the HPA axis and the recently researched effect on microbiota on not only on visceral pain sensitisation, but also their effect on mood and personality.
