Prism adaptation to alleviate pain and improve functional outcome in unilateral chronic pain

Prism adaptation to alleviate pain and improve functional outcome in unilateral chronic pain

Investigators : Samar Hatem, André Mouraux, Valery Legrain.

This research project aims at (1) characterizing cognitive deficits similar to hemispatial neglect in unilateral chronic pain patients by examining the interactions between pain and visuospatial perception, (2) assessing the efficacy of prism adaptation as an original non-pharmacological approach to alleviate pain and to improve the functional outcome in unilateral chronic pain and (3) characterizing the changes in brain morphology induced by prism adaptation using high resolution MRI.
