Symptom and Sensation in Breathlessness: Neuroscience meets the Humanities with Professor Jane Macnaughton

This year’s Frances Ivensannual lecture exploreshow medical humanities is engaged in the complexities of clinical science.

The symptom of breathlessness presents a dilemma in that symptom experience does not correlate well with measured lung function. In this lecture Professor Jane Macnaughton will describe how her research project Life of Breath brings together medical humanities with neuroscience to understand this problem.

The Life of Breath project includes researchers from a number of different subjects, working together to find new ways of answering questions about breathlessness in the hope to improve the lives of patients.

The lecture will take place at 5.30pm, followed by a free drinks reception and canapes for all.
