My research aims to identify objective pain neurological markers in chronic pain population during sensory stimulation (e.g., thermal, mechanical or electrical). I am interested in all neuroimaging techniques, and I have experience using tDCS for my M.A. Final Year Project, and EEG.
For this work I will be conducting a systematic review and meta-analysis on FMRI studies. I am also interested in finding the pain-specific activations in the chronic pain patients, and addressing the reliability and validity of pain biomarkers during the experience of pain with pain neuroimaging.
