Body In Mind is a website that I return to frequently. I also follow Body In Mind on twitter. I follow this site because it not only posts the latest findings on pain but more importantly (and interesteningly) its contributers are researchers in this field. I've posted often about the lead scientist, Dr Lorimer Moseley. Painful Yarns Explain Pain Lorimer is supported by a very impressive team:
James McAuley, manager BIM of research group NeuRa (interest area back pain)
Luke Parkitny (research area- factors that play a part in CRPS)
Shikta Dey (motor imagery)
Rahul Mohan (augmented reality and walking)
Nardia Barnsley (body image and object perception - hope I got that right) and
Heidi Allen whose job it is to get the message out there using among other things blogs and social media.
As if this team isn't impresssive enough, Body In Mind is supported by a group of collaborators:
David Butler is an internationally renowned clinical educator and pain scientist and Director of the Neuro Orthopaedic Institute.
Sensitive Nervous System Explain Pain Mobilisation of the Nervous System
Neil O’Connell is a researcher in the Centre for Research in Rehabilitation, Brunel University, West London, UK.(interest area lower back pain)
Dr Alberto Gallace researcher Italy. (His work underpins the very first neurocognitive model of tactile awareness.)
Professor Charles Spence Oxfor University (2008 IG Nobel prize for nutrition, for his groundbreaking work on the ‘sonic crisp’ - examining the senses with implications for design)
Professor Gunnar Wasner, Consultant Neurologist (pathophysiology and therapy of neuropathic pain states)
Recent posts of particular interest to those with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome are
