Event description

Description

Pain is one of the marvelous mechanisms your brain uses to tell you to stop and take care of yourself - to pay attention. At its best, pain can save your life. But sometimes it seems to misfire, to cause trouble rather than help. Join three UNM School of Medicine faculty on a journey through the brain’s pathways to understand pain’s functions and different types. Learn about what happens when it doesn’t work the way it’s supposed to… and what you can do to work with your own pain.
