Thomson Snell & Passmore is hosting our annual brain injury lecture on Thursday 23 May 2019 in Tunbridge Wells.
Dr Julius Bourke, consultant neuropsychiatrist, will deliver this year’s lecture entitled:
Neurobiological understanding of the polytrauma triad: traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder and pain
The development of chronic pain states and PTSD is very common following traumatic brain injury and their presence together is sometimes termed ‘the polytrauma triad’. The reason for this is complex and rests in the neurobiology of trauma-associated injury, rather than psychological response alone. This lecture explores this complicated relationship between these disorders and the importance of their paralleled treatment, by examining the anatomical, physiological and genetic overlaps that have been found to exist.
