PAIN AND THE BRAIN: THEORETICAL AND CLINICAL CONSIDERATIONS

Presenter: Moseley L

That the brain is a critical player when it comes to pain is now well

established and widely, although not universally, accepted. As a result,

the way we interpret many clinical interventions has changed and new

interventions have emerged. Not surprisingly, the massive advances in our

understanding of the role of the brain in pain have highlighted how little

we really know. This has triggered a renewed focus on theoretical models

and the development of novel experimental approaches with which to test

them. In this talk, I will present some contemporary theories that serve as

a kind of road map along which we are pursuing a better understanding of

why some people get chronic pain and others do not, how we can interrupt

this process and how we can treat those who have already made the

transition to chronicity. I will focus on theories that relate to the human as

a complex system, rather than theories based on any particular molecular,

genetic or end-organ dysfunction.
