This lecture, given to a live audience is one of the best I have seen for a long time. Lorimer Moseley is one of the leading researchers and teachers in the specialist area of Pain. He explains simply how the brain will sometimes ignore danger signals and at other times will “get it wrong” and respond strongly to something trivial. He talks about the nervous system and how it can become sensitised leading to chronic pain syndromes.
Even if you have little interest in the subject matter it is worth a look to see how he engages his audience using just the right amount of fun to keep everyone’s attention. Without even trying you will soon understand what the current understanding is of how the brain makes us feel pain and maybe, like me, you will want to find out more about this fascinating subject.
