Continuing Education for Rehabilitation Professionals

Danger Detection, Transmission and Implications for Care

Lecture Name

Danger Detection, Transmission and Implications for Care     $44.93

This lecture is part of the following course:
Nociception and Pain


This overview of nociception and pain presents current concepts in how the body senses injury or potential injury and transmits news of that event to the spinal cord. It also presents a new way of understanding how the spinal cord processes incoming information, as well as how injury, inflammation, prior events and brain responses adjust the danger detection apparatus and transmission of the danger message to the brain.
