Next Brain Seminar 2/8/13


Dr. Alexandre DaSilva will speak on "Tech-Innovations in Pain Neuroimaging and Neuromodulation" at the next Brain Health seminar at 12:00pm on Friday, February 8.

Abstract: While understanding central mechanisms in migraine and other chronic pain disorders using neuroimaging is important, equally important is applying these concepts to the clinical side of science. In this lecture, we will discuss how those faulty mechanisms can be directly and safely targeted for research and therapeutic purposes using novel neuromodulatory techniques.

Alexandre F. M. DaSilva, DDS, DMedSc, is Director of Headache & Orofacial Pain Effort (H.O.P.E.) and Assistant Professor at the Biologic & Materials Sciences Department at the University of Michigan Dental School.

This event is part of the Stimulating Brain Health: Exercise, Electricity, and Other Emerging Interventions series.
