SfN 2016: CLINICAL ROUNDTABLE #3 – Critical Topics in Pain Mechanisms and Therapeutics

November 16, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am PST

At Society for Neuroscience’s (SfN) 46th annual meeting, neuroscientists presented emerging science, learned from experts, collaborated with peers, explored new tools and technologies, and advanced careers.

Organizer/Moderator: Timothy J Brennan, MD, PhD
Date & Time: Wednesday, November 16, 2016 8:30am – 11am
Location: SDCC 11B

Panelists: Emeran A Mayer, MD; Sinyoung Kang, PhD, MD; A. Vania V Apkarian, PhD; Patrick M Dougherty, PhD

In this roundtable, we will discuss the strengths and limitations of animal models using postoperative pain and chemotherapy-induced neuropathy as examples. Because several acute pain conditions can lead to chronic pain, neuroimaging has been used to understand the processes involved in the development of chronic pain. Because the chronic pain condition is associated with complex psychosocial comorbidities, the use of neuroimaging to understand these comorbidities in patients with chronic visceral pain will be examined.
