27 May 2013 Inaugural meeting of Cafe Scientifique Hong Kong



Presented by Nick Rawlins, Professor of Experimental Psychology and Pro-Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University.

Do you suffer from headaches? Does back pain keep you up at night? Most of us experience recurring pain at some point in our lives, but how do we know that the pain is real and not just in our minds?

For our first Cafe Scientifique, Professor Rawlins explains that when it comes to chronic pain, the mind-body interaction holds the key to understanding why it hurts. The pain we feel stems not only from our current health problems, but also from our fear of future pain.

PAIN AND THE BRAIN recounts the extraordinary tale of a man who had a huge steel bar blown through his skull, but miraculously survived. Encompassing 'the most famous brain in neuroscience', amazing new technology which allows us to see right inside the brain, and a toe that had a nail driven through it (ouch!), this Cafe will help you see your aches and pains in a whole new light. 


About Cafe Scientifique

Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. They are run in over 30 countries around the world.

Cafes start with a short talk (usually 20-30 minutes) by the speaker, to introduce the topic. After that there is a short break, to allow glasses to be refilled, followed by an hour or so of questions and answers and general discussion. The talks cover a wide range of topics relating to science - everything from Astronomy to Zoology. They are jargon-free, accessible to all, and extremely interesting!

Cafes Scientifique is a not-for-profit organisation and the talks are free of charge. Speakers are not paid fees but a hat will be passed around on the night for voluntary contributions towards their travel expenses and a well-earned drink.

When: Monday 27th May 2013. 7pm doors open, grab a drink and a snack. 7.30-9.00pm talk followed by discussion. 
Where: Hong Kong Maritime Museum, Central Ferry Pier No.8
Cost: FREE
