How subjective is the experience of pain, and how does it ultimately emerge from the brain?
Dr Lee will explain the key difference between nociception (biological process that signals potential or actual physical injury) and pain (defined as a conscious experience), and that nociception is not necessary or sufficient for pain.
Together with real-life examples from his brain imaging research, he will show us how we can reinterpret or regulate the biological signal for better or worse.
Dr Lee is a Consultant in Pain Management who works in the Pain Imaging Neuroscience Group at The University of Oxford.
