Pain, The Brain and A Little Bit of Magic is an empowering performance talk created in collaboration with Anthony Jones, professor of Neuro-rheumatology and leader of the Human Pain Research Group at The University of Manchester. Professor Jones pioneered the use of functional brain imaging to understand the brain mechanisms of chronic pain and is now using his discoveries to develop new therapies. Based on this pioneering research, Pain, The Brain and A Little Bit of Magic looks inside the brain, exploring how we feel pain, how it is signalled in the body and how we develop chronic conditions and offers an optimistic message of ways in which chronic pain may be better understood and treated.


Pain, The Brain and A Little bit of Magic is designed not only for chronic pain sufferers, the people who support them and medical professionals, but also for anyone who wants to know more about what makes the brain tick.
