Event/Session Summary

Neurophysiological Methods in the Assessment of Neuropathic Pain in Humans

Hands-On Workshop

The session will focus on the application of cutting-edge neurophysiology techniques to our understanding of chronic neuropathic pain. The speakers will discuss the use of clinical and experimental neurophysiological techniques in the study of patients with peripheral neuropathy. Neurophysiological techniques, in particular microneurography and threshold tracking, offer tremendous advantages. They are translational techniques that can provide new insights into peripheral neuronal mechanisms of nociception and neuropathic pain. The speakers will highlight recent technological advances in the field and data collected from ongoing clinical research studies.
