Lectures and seminars Webinar: "Pain, Sex and Death"
The aim of these CPD (Continuing professional development) is to follow the legal requirements for maintenance and demonstration of competence in laboratory animal science, and to facilitate the implementations of the 3R’s in routine animal work.
"Pain, Sex and Death"
Pain researchers have now come to some consensus regarding the existence of small quantitative sex differences in the sensitivity to and tolerance of pain in humans. In addition, evidence is rapidly emerging that the sexes may differ qualitatively in their neural mediation of pain and analgesia. That is, different genetic factors, neural circuits, and neuromodulators may be relevant to pain processing in males and females.
I will present several research stories - all from completely different levels of analysis and most displaying mouse-to-human translation - suggestive of fundamental sex dimorphism in pain processing, and the interaction of pain with other biological phenomena including social behavior, memory, and mortality.
