Research Brain imaging, Experimental and clinical pain, Pain modulation
研究概況 The main focus of my work is on central processing of acute and chronic pain. Recent research is focused on the mechanisms underlying alleviation of clinical ongoing pain in response to modulatory techniques such as peripheral and central stimulation and pharmacological intervention. A variety of brain imaging techniques, pain modalities, and tissue systems are being explored. Optimized stimulation protocols are being developed for intractable headaches using transcranial DC stimulation. The central manifestations of the pain modulatory effects are being investigated with newly developed techniques such as 2D and 3D glutamatergic MR spectroscopic imaging and functional brain connectivity. All research is performed in close collaboration with clinicians and MR physicists.
