Lab updates

Latest Project Finishes

Our most recent finger stretching arthritis project (funded by the Dunhill Medical Trust) has come to an end so we would like to thank all the people that took part for us. We’re still ploughing through all the data, but we can tell you that the results, overall, look pretty similar to last time with pain being reduced in around 3/4 of those with arthritic pain in their hands. We’ll keep you posted, so keep checking back for updates.

Helen to stay in the lab

In additional news - we received some fantastic news last week that Helen Gilpin, our hard-working researcher for the latest arthritis project, has been granted a Ph.D. studentship at Nottingham so that she can continue her research over the next three years, starting in September. This is great news for the lab as it means that we can start testing some of our new illusions as well as continuing our research into the mechanisms behind different kinds of pain.

Coming Soon! Part 4 of From Box Files to the British Science Festival and the Spring Quarterly Illusion...Supernunerary Limbs.
