A computational model of the integration of noxious and innocuous input in the dorsal horn

By Kirstin Ahmed

A mathematical model of possible mechanisms contributing to phantom limb pain. By modelling the activity of neurons in the spinal cord we can recreate several characteristics that are typical for pain. We then explore how the system behaves after a severe nerve injury, such as an amputation, and how this could contribute to phantom limb pain.
