Ben Seymour

Wellcome Senior Clinical Fellow

  • Honorary Consultant Neurologist

My lab addresses the computational and systems neuroscience of pain. This research is part theoretical: building realistic models of neuronal information processes to understand processes of pain perception and behaviour, and part experimental: testing these theories using a range of experimental methodologies, especially fMRI. My research aims to develop new technology-based therapies for treating pain in clinical populations.

I am a Wellcome Senior Clinical Fellow at Oxford University, working jointly at the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging and the Oxford Institute for Biomedical Engineering; and a visiting researcher at the Center for Information and Neural Networks (National institute of Information and Communications Technology) in Osaka, and ATR labs (Kyoto). I am also an honorary consultant neurologist at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust.
