Research at ACELAB™ for CNS is centered on the sex differences, hormonal regulation and neural processing of pain. It explores the neural mechanisms associated with sensory disorders and pain symptoms refractory to conventional treatments. More specifically, it examines the mechanisms involved in controlling and down-regulating chronic pain symptoms in adults, associated with long term neuroplastic, endocrine and immunal changes. Its translational value lies in defining the neurogenic components of functional gastrointestinal disorders, and exploring the interactive dynamics of gender, stress and sensorimotor pathways, and their roles in the processing of intractable pain.
