How opioids shape our feelings: Sorting facts from myths
The Sir Sydney Sunderland Named Lecture is offered to an international guest speaker.
The Sunderland Lecture was instituted at the 1987 meeting of the APS in recognition of Sir Sydney Sunderland’s contribution to the understanding of neuropathic pain. Sir Sydney Sunderland was an Australian neuro-anatomist who spent much of his career at the University of Melbourne. His major contribution to the research field was the description of recovery following peripheral nerve injury. There is a brief synopsis of Sir Sydney’s life and achievements on the Australian Academy of Science website
