Investigation of the neural correlates of ongoing pain states using quantitative perfusion arterial spin labelling

Abstract:

At present, there are few clinically effective pain therapies available to treat chronic pain. One reason is due to a lack of understanding about how pain emerges in the brain. Excitingly, an emerging body of work suggests that the perfusion imaging technique, arterial spin labelling (ASL), is particularly well-suited to investigate this issue. The primary aim of this thesis is to develop and optimise a quantitative perfusion imaging approach to investigate the neural correlates of both ex...
