This meeting was the first to convene scientists from diverse fields studying mechanisms and behaviour important for pain together with experts in evolutionary medicine. The goals of the meeting were to encourage the application of an evolutionary perspective to pain research, to identify pain-related questions having important evolutionary considerations, and to highlight advances in our understanding of the evolution of pain.
More information on the schedule of talks is available below. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place.
Meeting papers can be found in a themed issue of Philosophical Transactions B.
