Eligibility: The competition is open to all UTCSP trainees (undergrad, masters, PhD, postdoc) who are registered for the UTCSP 2023 Scientific Meeting (please note that registration is free)
Profiling Our Work
UTCSP has a broad membership of interfaculty researchers and clinicians who are highly active in their scholarly communities. We are proud to profile and share their ground-breaking work which advances the understanding of pain and pain mechanisms — on national and international levels.
Ultrasound-guided repetitive pulsed peripheral magnetic stimulation provides pain relief in refractory glossopharyngeal neuralgia: a case report
Use of injections for chronic pain from 2010 to 2019 in Ontario, Canada
In vivo construction of the central amygdala and trigeminal motor nucleus white matter pathway in humans using 7T and 3T Diffusion Weighted Imaging
The mandibular branch of the trigeminal nerve controls muscles of mastication through an area of the pontine brainstem called the trigeminal motor nucleus (5M). In rodents, 5M motor neurons have been shown to be involved in various circuits that contribute to jaw functions. Mapping these circuits in humans has been challenging because of the complex structure of the brainstem, the prevalence of crossing fibers, and the need for high-resolution technology to unravel these circuits.
