The Pain And Interoception Imaging Network (PAIN)

The Pain And Interoception Imaging Network (PAIN) seeks to improve understanding of the brain's role in chronic disease, with a particular emphasis on chronic pain states.  PAIN provides an infrastructure for storage of functional and structural brain imaging data and associated behavioral metadata from multiple scanning sites and provides infrastructure for automated analysis of the resulting comprehensive data sets. Through these efforts, PAIN facilitates new discoveries in brain endophenotypes and biomarkers of chronic pain states.
