Jeffrey Mogil: Pain, Friends, Sex and your Mother: Complexity and Opportunity in Pain Science and Treatment
Leading McGill scientists cover many major aspects of pain science, from molecular and neural pathways to the psychological modulation of pain. The series bridges our understanding of how factors such as environment, genetics, gender, age and lifestyle are related to pain.
This lecture presents the latest advances in pain genetics, evidence that the sexes may differ qualitatively in their neural processing of pain, and intriguing evidence that pain can be powerfully modulated by social interactions and communication, even in mice.
