Geha Lab

Welcome to the Pain and Perceptions Lab

The Pain and Perceptions Lab focuses on pain and hedonic perceptions. We are interested in understanding the neural mechanisms that transform nociceptive input to painful perceptions in humans and how these mechanisms change in chronic pain.  Pain and nociception are closely related to somatosensory (e.g., touch) and hedonic perceptions and therefore we also study such experiences with the aim of disentangling pain from non-painful perception and understanding how hedonic perception goes awry in chronic pain patients.
