A filmmaker and neuroscientist, Laurie Polisky is finalizing a film about a revolutionary chronic pain study at CU Boulder. This massive neuroimaging study is investigating non-invasive treatments for pain, with surprising results. Joining her on the film team for “Pain Brain” are Mitch Dickman (“Rolling Papers”), Tim Kaminski (“Chasing Coral”), and Freida Pinto (“Slumdog Millionaire”). Laurie will share clips and discuss the research project headed by Israeli Yoni Ashar, Ph.D.

Supported by the Lichter family, in honor and memory of George Lichter who thoroughly enjoyed the Lunch and Learn programs.
