EEG signal processing and classification methods to characterize pain-related brain networks

EEG signal processing and classification methods to characterize pain-related brain networks

Investigators : Dounia Mulders, Michel Verleysen, André Mouraux.

The general objective of this project is to develop new electrophysiological approaches and signal processing and classification methods that can be used in humans to characterize (1) the brain networks through which the experience of physiological pain emerges, (2) the individual differences in these networks that may explain individual differences in the susceptibility of patients to develop chronic pain and (3) the alterations of these networks that may be related to the development of a chronic pain state.
