Basic Pain Research (Pre-Conference Workshop)
$15.00 – $35.00
The Basic Pain Research workshop will aim to present current basic pain research in Australia and provide evidence of its importance for our understanding of mechanism underlying nociception. Area experts will provide latest research in areas such as impact of the immune system on nociceptive processing, role of the spinal cord in processing of nociceptive information, how we might be able to measure pain, how toxins can be used to treat pain and what the difference is between pain in internal organs and the rest of the body. In addition the presentations will introduce latest research techniques ranging from deep sequencing and optogenetics to comprehensive analysis of animal behaviour.
