Mark Hutchinson8 August 2014: Invited Seminar at the University of Melbourne

A/Prof Mark Hutchinson visited the University of Melbourne, delivering a seminar on the topic: What is the Role of “The Other Brain” in Chronic Pain? In this seminar he reviewed the recent discoveries of how innate immune signalling within the brain and spinal cord facilitate persistent pain.  These neuroimmune contributions to persistent pain have significant implications for how we view sex differences in pain and pharmacologically intervene to treat, rather than manage persistent pain.
