Chu Research Lab Human Pain and Opioid Physiology Research

Mythbusters Visits the Chu Lab

The crew of the Discovery Channel's television program, Mythbusters, visited the Chu lab to learn about human experimental pain models and how to perform basic quantitative sensory testing of pain in human volunteers. The program's hosts, Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, visited the lab to personally experience different types of pain tests and learn how they might be applied to answer questions regarding common "myths" about pain among the lay public.

Dr. Chu and his laboratory assistants, Ms. Nicole D'Arcy, Chelsea Young and Abby Zamora, demonstrate various testing techniques to Jamie and Adam. View a sample clip from the program No Pain No Gain, from Discovery Website below.
