Title: Using Neuroimaging to Study Pain
Author(s): Martin Lindquist*
Companies: Johns Hopkins University
Keywords: fMRI; Brain; biomarkers; Pain

Pain is both a subjective and complex phenomenon. It is widely thought to emerge from distributed brain networks whose inputs include sensory, affective and evaluative processes. To properly understand pain, we must identify these networks and build models of their interactions that yield testable predictions about pain-related outcomes. In this talk we discuss several such models or ‘signatures’ of pain, that were developed by integrating activity across multiple systems, and using pattern-recognition to identify processes related to pain experience.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
