Brigham and Women's Hospital Studies Brain Processing for Pain
Researchers used a brain imaging technique called arterial spin labeling to examine patterns of brain connectivity of those who suffer from chronic back pain and those who don't. They found that when a patient moved in a way that increased their back pain, a network of brain regions called default mode network exhibited changes in its connections.
With further research, this could be a step toward developing an objective scale for measuring pain in humans.
