Pain Mechanisms Group
Our goal is to understand mechanisms of pain and establish new therapy for acute and chronic pain patients.
1 Roles of catecholamine in pain modulation system
2 Neuronal circuits of pain perception in spinal cord and brain (in vivo patch clamp technique)
3 Functional and morphological investigations of relation of pain and brain function (with MRI, MEG, EEG, and PET)
4 Evaluation of drug efficacy in patients with EEG, MRI, and reaction to heat stimulation.
5 Drug delivery system for acute and chronic pain patients
Neurophysiology / Cell biology Group
1 The site of action of anesthetic agents in neuron
2 Effects of local anesthetics on regeneration process of axons
1 Drug metabolism under general anesthesia/ cardiopulmonary bypass
2 Relation of cardiovascular failure, Brain circulation, and drug metabolism
3 New therapy for severe arterial blood flow disorder with combination of peripheral nerve block, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and induction of angiogenesis using growth factor
4 CT-guided nerve block, epiduroscopy
