Dr. Stuart Derbyshire
Stuart Derbyshire completed his PhD at the University of London in 1995. His research thesis was one of the first to apply new brain imaging techniques to the study of pain. From London, Dr. Derbyshire moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and then to the University of California, Los Angeles, where he continued his research into the brain mechanisms of functional pain.
Now at the National University of Singapore, Dr. Derbyshire has a joint appointment in the Department of Psychology and the Clinical Imaging Research Centre (CIRC).
Dr. Derbyshire's research interests include the causes of functional pain, such as fibromyalgia, and the development of conscious awareness. He has written widely on the topic of pain, including articles addressing hypnotically induced pain, fetal pain, and the nature of functional pain.
