ABOUT ME

 

I am a neuroscientist at the University of Liverpool with a focus on pain processing in the human brain. I have studied brain processes related to the effects of expectancy, placebo and mindfulness on acute and chronic pain. My research involves the use of psychophysics, neuroimaging (EEG and fMRI) and statistical modelling.

 

RESEARCH THEMES

 

My research investigates how brain states influence pain perception and behaviour, with an aim to develop new treatments for chronic pain.

Learning and neuroplasticity

 

The brain naturally adapts its structure and function over time in response to changes in the body and environment, a phenomenon known as neuroplasticity.

Brain mechanisms of pain resilience

 

How can the brain can be trained to develop psychological resilience to pain and injury?

Neurotherapeutics

 

 

The discovery of brain processes contributing to chronic pain provides a new class of candidate targets for electroceutical medicine.
