SAHLGRENSKA ACADEMY SEMINARS
Speaker: Richard D. Johnson, Professor, Dept of Physiological Sciences, College of Vet Med, Dept. of Neuroscience, College of Medicine, Univ of Florida, USA
Title: New implications for the role of visceral sensory neurons in health and disease
Host: Ingela Hammar email@example.com
Dr. Rick Johnson is a Professor of Physiological Sciences and Neuroscience at the University of Florida. Over his career, his research has focused on the physiology, neuroanatomy, and immunohistochemistry of the single sensory neurons, spinal cord and brainstem interneurons, and motoneurons of the somatosensory and visceral systems, and how these neurons function following chronic spinal cord or peripheral nerve injury, chronic pain, neuromodulation, and nerve regeneration. His current focus is on the visceral sensory innervation of the vasculature in deep tissue (muscle, bone marrow, visceral organs) and their involvement in chronic dysfunctional states due to environmental toxins or metabolic disease.
A light lunch will be served from 11.30 outside the venue on a first come – first served basis.
