How do we feel pain? What parts of the brain control our reaction to painful sensations? And how is stem cell technology revolutionising the search for better treatments for chronic pain?
In this episode of How We’re Wired, join evolutionary anthropologist Dr Anna Machin as she unpicks the neuroscience of pain – from how early pain experiences can make us at risk for future problems, to the complexity of treating life-changing pain conditions like fibromyalgia, and a new system for developing novel pain relievers.
With special thanks to Rachel, Andy, and Clifford Woolf.
