Researchers at Lund University have lately received a lot of attention for their work on a new stimulation method, using ultra-thin microelectrodes, to combat severe pain. This provides effective and personalised pain relief without the common side effects from pain relief drugs.
The study, 3D microelectrode cluster and stimulation paradigm yield powerful analgesia without noticeable adverse effects, was published in the research journal Science Advances online the 8th of October 2021. We are really proud that the part of the study related to CT scans, was done at the LBIC facility for preclinical nuclear medicine!
