Plenary Session III - Opening Our Vision and Insight to Pain Featured

8:30 AM - 10:30 AM Saturday, January 19

This session will explore the concepts of pain including neuropathic pain profiles, cognitive and affective components of pain. In addition, advances in our understanding of the genetic and image findings associated with pain will be characterized.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Outline the human pain genetics database.
  • Classify functional MRI images associated with pain.
  • Explain the cognitive and affective components of pain.
  • Analyze image findings and their implications in the role of neurostimulation in treating pain.
