Professor of Physiology, Anesthesiology, and Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

Dr. Apkarian has studied pain for two decades, both in animal models and fMRI studies in humans.

His current interests include cortical dynamics of pain as well as brain plasticity. His overall goal is the uncovering of brain mechanisms underlying PAIN QUALIA.
