Postdoctorate researcher (ERC Starting grant PROBING PAIN)
Coordinator : Pr. André Mouraux
The main objective of my research is to study pain- or nociception-induced central nervous system plasticity. Currently, my studies are focused on characterizing changes in nociceptive pathways that lead or contribute to hyperalgesia, and I am, thereby, particularly interested in the phenomenon of "central sensitization"; the increase responsiveness of nociceptive neurons in the central nervous system that generates widespread hyperalgesia ("secondary hyperalgesia").
