How subjective is the experience of pain, and how does it ultimately emerge from the brain?
Together with real-life examples from his brain imaging research, Dr Lee will show us how we can reinterpret or regulate the biological signal for better or worse.
Dr Lee is a Consultant in Pain Management who works in the Pain Imaging Neuroscience Group at The University of Oxford.

We hope to see you there!

'I feel it is important to relay my experience back to let the staff know they are doing a brilliant job! I would like them to know I appreciated all they did for myself, my family and our beautiful baby girl.'
