This course describes the neuronal mechanisms that underlie the sensation of acute and chronic pain and the actions and abuses of drugs used to treat pain. Each lecture will begin with an introduction to aspects of the neuroscience of pain, followed by a discussion of related clinical concepts. Lecture notes will be distributed prior to each session, and the lecture slides will be available for review after each presentation. The goal of the course is to enable students to better understand the functions of their own brains in relation to pain perception and treatment. There is no prerequisite for the course.
*This class meets two times for 2 hours each.
