The objective of my PhD is to characterize the organization and the interdependences between different brain areas involved in processing of somatosensory and nociceptive inputs and in perception of pain in humans. Our approach will combine non-invasive neuroimaging techniques such as electroencephalography (EEG) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) with transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). As a physiotherapist, I am also interested in the different aspects of pain modulation and how they can potentially be applied clinically.
