Think Big: A Night Out with Your Brain – The Paradox of Pain

November 24, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


The Paradox of Pain

How does our body tell us something is painful? Why do certain people go on to develop chronic pain where others do not? And why is pain so difficult to treat? Join Think Big host Jay Ingram and experts from the University of Calgary’s Hotchkiss Brain Institute and the Calgary Chronic Pain Centre as they explore these questions and discuss the latest findings in pain research and treatment.
