Professor David Yarnitsky is the Chair of Neurology at Rambam Health Care Campus, and of the Clinical Neurophysiology Laboratory in the Technion Faculty of Medicine, both in Haifa, Israel. He is widely published in pain psychophysics and neurophysiology, in health, as well as in clinical pain syndromes such as migraine, painful neuropathy and peri-operative pain.
His current research interests are targeted at assessment of pain modulation, mainly by the CPM (Conditioned Pain Modulation) mechanism, and its implementation in pain therapy.
Professor Yarnitsky will be hosting a plenary session on day 1 to discuss Pain modulation: How is it measured, how is it used, and on day 3 where she will be presenting on the topic of EEG in pain research: The coming of age.
Professor Yarnitsky will also be involved in the Meet the Speakers breakfast session that has been offered to junior researchers, PhD students and post doctorate fellows. The aim of this session is to give younger scientists and clinicians an opportunity to ascertain career advice and guidance from the APS 2016 international plenary speakers.
We are delighted to have Professor Yarnitsky involved in APS 2016, we hope you will be able to attend and enjoy everything this conference has to offer. To register for the 2016 Australian Pain Society 36th Annual Scientific Meeting please click here.
