AN fMRI-BASED BIOMARKER FOR PHYSICAL PAIN

Persistent pain is central to many disorders, but can only be measured by self-report, which hampers diagnosis and treatment. In this work, we introduce a biomarker based on distributed patterns of functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) activity that a) accurately predicts pain experience and b) differentiates physical pain from related experiences. Four studies (total N=114) tested the biomarkers sensitivity and specificity for pain at the level of the individual person.
