Neuroimaging Studies

Neuroimaging Studies determine the representation of pain and cognitive impairment in the brain. Studies with healthy volunteers involve using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to explore the mechanisms of pain and analgesia, including pharmacological and behavioral interventions. With cancer patients, fMRI explores the negative effects of anemia and pain on the brain.
