Theme 2: Seeing Pain

“Imaging pain, from cells to humans”

Leaders: Yves De Koninck (Laval), Cathy Bushnell (McGill)

The objective is to support the broad use of imaging techniques in human and animals to identify brain networks and pathways involved in pathological pain. This should advance understanding of the mechanisms underlying pathological pain and establish objective assessments techniques. To achieve this, we will:

  • Support our existing imaging platforms (Cellular Imaging, Brain Imaging)
  • Support development of novel imaging modalities, tools and approaches.
