Research into the role of the brain in chronic pain.
Who are Body in Mind
The relationship between the body, the brain and the mind is complex and magnificent, which is why lots of people are investigating it. This website focuses on attempts to better understand the way the body, brain and mind interact. The lead scientist, Dr Lorimer Moseley, is particularly interested in the role of the brain and mind in chronic and complex pain disorders. Through collaborations with clinicians, scientists, patients and thoughtful friends, the team is exploring how the brain and its representation of the body change when pain persists, how the mind influences physiological regulation of the body, how the changes in the brain and mind can be normalised via treatment, and how we can teach people about it all in a way that is both interesting and accurate. This website includes links to published articles, current projects, teaching resources for clinicians and lecturers, Lorimer’s books, seminars and conferences and other info that the team thinks is intriguing, important or irresistible.
The Body in Mind team includes collaborators in research experiments and clinical trials, bloggers who are kind enough to contribute to the BiM blog, and our research team here at Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA) and University of South Australia (UniSA). Read more…
