Neuroanatomy and Neurophysiology and its Relevance in Pain Management introduces you to the basic neuroscience of pain. Neuro-anatomical, physiological, pharmacological and biochemical mechanisms involved in nociception, including peripheral and central sensitization will be explored.  

The contribution of genetics will also be considered as will how various factors modify or maintain pain perception and behaviour. The course is fully online and runs for five weeks.

Course Aims and Objectives

This course aims to provide you an opportunity to consider:

  • the basic neuroscience of pain and the interrelationship between psychological, physiological and environmental processes in pain
  • the biological and mechanistic contributors to pain within the biopsychosocial model
  • the key concepts/details of pain mechanisms based on the latest available research evidence
  • the current research on the neurophysiological processes involved in pain signal, transmission and processing
  • the influence of genetics pn nociception mechanisms and on heritable and other genetic-induced pain conditions



The content of this CPD course has been chosen and structured as an introduction to neuroanatomy and neurophysiology and its relevance to the field of pain management.  The content consists of five units of study in total – one per week:

  1. Introduction to Pain Mechanisms
  2. Peripheral Mechanisms
  3. Spinal Mechanisms
  4. Brain Mechanisms
  5. The Genetics of Pain

*Please note that whilst the content of the courses is set in advance, we do reserve the right to make minor amendments to the course material as and when necessary.
