More people suffer from chronic pain than any other health problem. Our understanding of the psychological processes that cause or exacerbate it is poor. Problems remembering past events play an important role in mental illness, however, their contribution to pain is under-investigated. This project will examine the role of autobiographical memory problems in pain severity and disability, considering how they manifest in the real world, outside of the lab or clinic.
