Past Research
The role of genetics and environment in pain
Assessing the role of genetic and environmental factors in the sensation of pain using a human psychophysical pain study on a large population of monozygotic and dizygotic twins. This is combined with genetic analysis and functional imaging to assess the inheritability of pain sensitivity. To complement this work, a cross fostering study on mice looking at baseline strain differences and the significance of uterine environment and postnatal rearing on the pain phenotype of the animal.
