About Us

Our lab is interested in discovering the brain mechanisms of pain. Pain is a complex experience, and we are slowly beginning to understand the relationship between brain activity and the various pain dimensions.


We perform brain imaging research with humans and with rodent models of chronic pain. Our overall goal is to identify brain regions and circuits that change with chronic pain.
