We are examining the mechanisms of chronic pain and fatigue in human participants. Both syndromes are overlapping and affect up to 4% of the general population. Besides quantitative sensory testing of skin and muscles we often use functional MRI to evaluate the central nervous system involvement of affected individuals. Of particular relevance for patients with chronic pain and/or fatigue is our goal to develop psychophysical testing whose results will predict each patient’s response to therapies.
