Q. Please tell us about yourself.
I am a professor in the Biomedical Sciences department of the College of Osteopathic Medicine and a member of the Center for Excellence in the Neurosciences at the University of New England in Biddeford Maine. My interest in neuroscience developed during my undergraduate studies at Coe College in Iowa and was reinforced during my graduate studies at Texas A&M, where I obtained my Ph.D. studying the neuroscience of pain. Over the course of my career I have learned much about the neurobiology underlying pain.
