14h00 – 16h00 Afternoon activities – three booths

  • Research Oral Presentations
  • Poster Presentation with jury and students to present
  • Workshop on Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST)

 

These activities will vary, depending about the number of abstracts submitted for oral presentations and poster. If the number is low, therefore we will make one plenary session with presentation of Oral presentation, and Quick Poster presentation (1 slide). The duration of the Oral presentations will vary with the number but would be around 10-12’ for presentation & 3’ for questions.

The workshop will include videos presenting realization of QST in lab animals, companion animals and large animals. Moreover, TOPcat Metrology would present their instrument and include a demo for their use.

 

16h00 – 16h25 Break

 

16h30 – 17h15 Round table about Neuroplasticity and memory of pain: Are we doing enough?
