Postdoctoral Research fellow, Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My work centers on the development of a better understanding of how pain affects posture and movement of the body from the perspective of sensory, motor, and information processing. Understanding these interrelated aspects can enable healthcare providers to better target specific mind-body treatments at an individual level, inform the development of novel interventions that aim to restore physical function, and culminate into more effective integrative therapies and self-management programs.
Professor of Biology in the Department of Anesthesia, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My laboratory tries to find out how pharmacologic agents used in the practice of anesthesia (general anesthetic and analgesic agents) lead to therapeutically desireable endpoints including unconsciousness, immobility and absence of pain. The old idea that general anesthetics are uniformly non-specific "membrane stabilizers" is giving way to a new realization that these agents exert specific actions on particular ion channels and intracellular signalling systems.
