The working group is focused on mechanisms underlying brain plasticity using techniques such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). We aim at investigating individual variability in learning and memory circuits, as well as functional and structural connectivity, which could provide a better understanding of the development of chronic pain.
We will examine mechanisms leading to maladaptive plasticity in chronic pain patients using multimodal approaches such as psychometric measures (personality factors, behavioural variables), neuroimaging techniques (functional, structural MRI) with neurophysiological techniques (TMS, tDCS) as tools to promote beneficial plasticity.
