Neurophysiological Methods in the Assessment of Neuropathic Pain in Humans: Presenters will demonstrate different neurophysiological approaches to understand the physiology and pathophysiology of pain-related structures along different territories of the somatosensory system. Attendees will have the opportunity to practice the methods that explore the nociceptive pathway from the receptor to the brain through pain-related evoked potentials.
Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST): QST is a method for diagnosing peripheral nervous system disorders, including chronic pain and pain related to various diseases, such as Diabetes and CRPS. Learn about the determining of sensation and pain thresholds for cold and warm temperatures, and the vibration sensation threshold by stimulating the skin and comparing the results to normative values in this hands-on session.
