Neurobiology of nociception and pain
Chair of Neurophysiology
Mannheim Center for Translational Neuroscience (MCTN)
We are interested in the encoding of potentially damaging stimuli in the nervous system and in its relationship to acute and chronic pain states. Our research focuses on peripheral transduction mechanisms of painful heat stimuli, central sensitization in the spinal cord, the cortical representation of pain, the development of tools to assess nociceptive pathways in patients as well as learning and memory in nociceptive pathways.
