Amygdala Plasticity as a Neural Substrate for Chronic Pain


January 27, 2012, 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.


Robert Gereau, PhD

Professor of Anesthesiology, Anatomy and Neurobiology; Chief, Basic Science Division, Washington University Pain Center, St. Louis, Missouri


Fralin Biomedical Research Institute, M203
2 Riverside Circle, Roanoke, VA 24016

Building on his public lecture, New Approaches to Treating Chronic Pain: Targeting Central Sensitization, Dr. Gereau will discuss in detail studies showing that amygdala ERK activation contributes to plasticity underlying central pain sensitization. He will include behavioral, biochemical, electrophysiological, and optogenetic approaches to dissect the role that amygdala plasticity plays in central sensitization underlying chronic pain.
