Arthur Courtin - former PhD student


The first objective of my PhD was to characterize, in humans, the different afferent fiber populations and transient receptor potential (TRP) channels responsible for the ability to perceive innocuous and noxious cold. The second objective of my PhD was to evaluate the clinical usefulness of recording cool-evoked brain potentials (CEPs) to assess the function and integrity of the thermonociceptive system.

Arthur Courtin is now postdoc at Aarhus University.
