Our Goal

Aiming at “knowing pain and relieving pain”, we dedicate

(1) to investigate cognitive neural mechanisms of pain specificity and sensitivity,

(2) to develop methods to measure pain objectively and accurately,

(3) to create new analgesic strategies based on psychophysiological principles.

Our work would promote patients’ physical and mental health, enhance their life quality, and finally release financial burdens which pain brings to their family and the society.

Our Topics

1、 To investigate the neural mechanism of nociceptive information processing

1) Feature extractions of pain sensitivity and specificity

2) Pathophysiology mechanism of clinical pain

2、 To develop objective assessment of pain perception

1) Prediction models based on pattern recognition

2) Pain perception measurement based on psychophysiological methods

3、 To explore psychophysiology-based analgesic methods

1) Music-induced analgesia

2) Placebo analgesia

3) TENS (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) analgesia

4) Conditional evaluation analgesia

Our Methods

1、 Neuroimaging methods such as EEG and fMRI

2、 Animal model

3、 Psychophysical measurement
