I am a clinician-researcher neurologist, focused on pain research. My main research interest is pain modulation in humans, using psychophysical tools as well as neurophysiological and other ones. Conditioned pain modulation is at the center of my research work, trying to understand how the endogenous analgesia systems shape the human pain behavior, and how they can be used to better treat pain. The clinical substrates of my research are neuropathic pain, migraine, post traumatic headache, fibromyalgia, and post operative pain. My clinical work is in general neurology, focus on neuromuscular disorders, neuropathic pain and headaches. During last 3 years I also serve as Editor in Chief of IASP’s new online open access journal PAIN Reports.
