Dr Bernadette Fitzgibbon

A researcher who studies how pain works in our brains is the latest scientist to feature in the Academy’s Brain Box podcast series.

In the interview, neuroscientist Dr Bernadette Fitzgibbon talks about why we need to study pain and whether or not you can really feel someone else’s pain.

The Academy’s Brain Box series is designed to let people get to know the minds behind the science. It is available on the Academy’s website, YouTube and iTunes. Brain Box has recently been featured as a ‘new and notable’ collection on iTunes U.
