John Harris - Nottingham BRC

John Harris’ research investigates mechanisms behind acute and chronic pain by measuring spinal reflexes using electrophysiological recording and motion analysis techniques. Current research includes:

  • How individual muscles in a limb are organised in producing a withdrawal reflex
  • How this organisation changes in acute and chronic pain states
  • The mechanisms underlying excitability changes in the spinal cord (‘central sensitisation’) in pain
  • Pain in rheumatoid and osteoarthritis and development of more effective analgesics
  • The treatment of osteoarthritis in dogs
