Chronic pain can involve changes throughout the central nervous system (CNS). Some treatments aim to alter CNS function, with limited results. This could be because research often investigates only one part of the CNS (e.g. cortex or spinal cord). This PhD will use brain stimulation, sensory testing, and neurophysiological methods to build an integrated understanding of changes in different levels of the CNS in chronic pain, and their modification by treatment.
