The PainSci Microblog

Nuggets of pain science news and insight, plus content announcements and highlights

Last post #876 on Nov 24, 2020

The PainScience blog is kind of a sideshow, the “director’s commentary” on the real content: the library of a couple hundred featured articles and ten books.

The blog is mostly light fare, made from odds and ends that catch my interest as I work: quotes and comics, study results and weird science, interesting links, and so on. There is the odd digression into semi-personal fascinations. But sometimes the blog is where I test out new ideas, and so the occasional post is destined to become an article in its own right (or at least an important part of an existing one).
