“Pain is in the Brain” and the “Neuro-biology of Emotions”- 2 separate lectures

Dr. Allan Basbaum from the University of California San Francisco gives excellent lecture on some of the newest neuro-science on how pain is processed and rationales for different modalities of treatment. This lecture is over 1 hour but very enlightening in regards to why we have to treat chronic pelvic pain not only from the “bottom up” – but also from the “top down”.

Dr. Phillipe Goldin, PhD from Stanford University, in this talk, ties in the huge cross connections between emotions and how the biology of brain function tie cumulative experiences in humans to emotions and interpretations of pain signals.  This lecture is part of a series of technology lectures by Google to educate millions of people on the “cutting edges” of science.

Both lectures below are video lectures by experts on pain, emotions and the brain.
