Shipping: Calculated at checkout

Product Description

This presentation postulates that the the subcortical organization of human consciousness provides a critical link for pain in patients with impaired cortical function or cortical immaturity during early development.

Practical implications of this thesis include: redefining pain, improved pain assessment in non-verbal humans, and advocating the benefits of adequate analgesia for these patients, and certainly justify the rigorous scientific efforts required to investigate it.

The viewer will:

  • Learn about the epidemiology of pain in early life.
  • Understand the early development of cortical function and consciousness.
  • Explore the links between consciousness, pain, and long-term development.
