The next talk in this new series from the University of Michigan Library will take place this coming Monday, February 25, 2013, from 10 am – 11:30 am in the Hatcher Graduate Library Gallery Lab.
Alex DaSilva from the Department of Biologic and Materials Science, and the Headache & Orofacial Pain Effort (HOPE) with the U of M School of Dentistry, will be speaking on innovations in chronic pain disorders. Particularly, he will focus on information gathering and data exploration impacting the development of mobile apps – for example, fMRI data collected during migraines. He will also discuss the soon-to-be-released PainTrek mobile app – which was developed to facilitate tracking, analyzing, and discussing pain via a “paint your pain” interface in where users “can easily enter the intensity and area of pain by simply dragging over a 3D head.” Dr. DaSilva will discuss his research processes and field questions from the audience.
Refreshments will also be served.
Dr. DaSilva’s talk is part of a monthly series that delves into research occurring on the U of M campus – for upcoming events through the winter semester, click here. You can follow the conversation on Twitter via the official account, @UMLibRes, or the hashtag #MLibRes.
