salt waterSaltwater Study

The purpose of this current study is to explore basic taste perception in humans. We use subjective rating methods and brain imaging to study the perceptual characteristics of taste and brain processes that cause them. By so doing we hope to obtain new information and understanding of how humans perceive essential nutrients

chronic pain imageChronic Pain Study

The purpose of this current study is to explore how chronic pain conditions may be affected by brain processes (or vice-versa). We use subjective rating methods, computer-based games, and brain imaging to study the characteristics of chronic pain and brain processes that cause them. By so doing we hope to obtain new information and understanding of chronic pain across multiple conditions.
