About Us

We study brain processes underlying touch & pain perception in humans using non-invasive brain imaging techniques. In animals we combine imaging, electrophysiology and mathematical models of neuronal networks. The objective is to understand the brain dynamics of touch & pain perception and apply this knowledge to alleviate human suffering, especially by advancing new clinical approaches to cure chronic pain.
