Sleep and Pain in Sickle-Cell Disease


The aim of this project is to determine whether improvements in sleep by CBT reduce pain and alter brain processing of pain and cognitive stimuli by using sensory testing and MRI scans. This project is done in collaboration with Drs. Claudia Campbell and Jennifer Haythornthwaite at Johns Hopkins University. 

Relevant papers:

Do chronic pain and comorbidities affect brain function in sickle cell patients? A systematic review of neuroimaging and treatment approaches.
