Alpha as a Predictive Biomarker (APB)

While a simple EEG-based test could provide a useful diagnostic tool for assessing pain objectively, no study to date has evaluated this potential in a systematic way. Here we propose to build on our ongoing work to develop a reliable and simple measure of pain. Our overall aim is to determine the predictive accuracy, reliability, and specificity of EEG alpha activity in acute pain and a model of neuropathic pain in healthy subjects.
