Since 2001, I have written about neuroscience for researchers, clinicians, patients, educators, and the public. I focus on chronic pain, opioids and integrative health. I write regularly for Pain Research Forum, Scientific American and Scientific American Mind. I have worked in media including print, online, live presentation, and television. Below is selection of my work. For more, see my complete archive.
