Johannes Frasnelli is a regular professor at the department of anatomy at the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (UQTR) since june 2014 and a researcher at the Center for Advanced Research in Sleep Medicine at the Sacré-Cœur de Montréal since october 2013.
His research programs aims at the comprehension of the physiology, psychology, and pathology of the chemical senses, i.e., smell, taste and trigeminal system (which allows for the perception of piquancy, freshness, etc.)

Un chercheur de UQTR - Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières tente de faire un lien qui pourrait permettre de détecter la maladie de Parkinson de façon plus précoce. C'est que la plupart des gens atteint par cette maladie neurologique ont aussi une perte de l'odorat. Le reportage de Pierre Marceau.

Trigeminal sensation (TS) within the nasal cavity is important for the perception of nasal airflow. The objective of this study is to examine whether impaired TS contributes to the sensation of nasal obstruction in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS).

In response to recent publications from pain neuroimaging experiments, there has been a debate about the existence of a primary pain region in the brain. Yet, there are few meta-analyses providing assessments of the minimum cerebral denominators of pain. Here, we used a statistical meta-analysis method, called activation likelihood estimation, to define (1) core brain regions activated by pain per se, irrelevant of pain modality, paradigm, or participants and (2) activation likelihood estimation commonalities and differences between patients with chronic pain and healthy individuals.

Burning mouth syndrome (BMS) is characterized by a burning sensation in the mouth, usually in the absence of clinical and laboratory findings. Latest findings indicate that BMS could result from neuropathic trigeminal conditions. While many investigations have focused on the periphery, very few have examined possible central dysfunctions. To highlight changes of the central system of subjects with BMS, we analysed the grey matter concentration in 12 subjects using voxel-based morphometry.
