NOCIONS : PAIN RESEARCH AT UCLOUVAIN

Arthur Courtin - PhD student (FSR)

Supervisor : Pr. André Mouraux

The first objective of my PhD is 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 is to demonstrate the clinical usefulness of recording cool-evoked brain potentials (CEPs) to assess the function and integrity of the thermonociceptive system. This will be achieved by conducting, in parallel, four complementary studies.
