A Personalized Approach to Opioid Use Based on Brain Networks
Dr. Tracey will describe a growing body of literature aimed at understanding how variances in brain networks and psychological profiling relate to the magnitude of opioid analgesia and addiction propensity. She will draw on work from human neuroimaging and preclinical studies from the pain and addiction literature. She will also discuss how long-term opioid use and opioid withdrawal affects brain networks. This will facilitate discussion around the potential for more careful stratification of patients for opioid use based upon individual brain networks.
