OUCH! - The science of pain from onset to relief.

Mini-Science 2012, presented by leading McGill scientists, starts with 'Dr. Joe' on the chemistry of pain, and the lecture series covers many major aspects of pain science, from molecular and neural pathways to the psychological modulation of pain. This series of lectures by McGill's top pain experts bridges our understanding of how numerous factors such as environment, genetics, gender, age and lifestyle are related to pain. Registration is now closed.

No science background is required. There is no homework and no exam.

This Mini-Science series is made possible through the generous support of Dr. Lorne Trottier.
