The research in my laboratories is focused on gaining a multidisciplinary understanding of the neurochemical and physiological consequences of peripheral injury and inflammation on neural activity in the CNS. There are several on-going projects related to this broad issue that provide the opportunity for students to participate in studies on subjects ranging from mice to humans and using techniques ranging from passive behavioral (psychophysical) analysis to acute in vivo and in vitro neurophysiological studies to functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).
