Dissecting neural circuits of pain perception



“Fifty years ago, biologists were putting together metabolic pathways. That’s what we’re doing now basically with neural circuits. We’re putting together neural circuit pathways.” - Richard Palmiter, PhD

Watch Richard talk about the neural circuits underlying the experience of pain, and how his research group is dissecting pain circuits in the brain.
