Description

Le Pub is super excited to welcome Morten Hoegh to the UK. Morten will talk about how to activate the body's own pain-relieving mechanisms. He will explore what basic science tells us about the innate ability of all humans to inhibit pain with another painful stimulus, breaking down the neuroscience of descending modulation.

Le Pub Welcomes Morten Hoegh


Morten Hoegh

Morten takes as much pleasure thinking about, probing and disseminating pain related information as he does sipping a good glass of Champagne (OK, maybe Champagne just pips it!). He has endless energy and passion for his work and a genuine commitment to improve the lives of those with chronic pain. He's even used himself (unwittingly) as his own lab rat, exploring the experience of capsaicin applied to the eyelids whilst driving into the evening sun. We can't wait to host Morten (and to hear how the drive went!!).
