About the event
Plasticity in the nervous system is a critical feature that allows an organism to adapt to changes in its environment. Although once seen as a very rigid structure, the nervous system has a tremendous capacity for change. This event will highlight the dynamic nature of the peripheral nervous system and consider potential avenues for therapies that aim to prevent the transition from acute to chronic pain.
