We investigate how pain and temperature perception emerges from complex interactions in the central nervous system in humans. We focus on understanding population-level mechanisms and neural dynamics in the human brain and spinal cord associated with the perception and misperception of pain and other bodily sensations. Our techniques include psychophysics, electro- and magneto-encephalography (EEG, MEG), and spinal and brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Our research involves healthy individuals, as well as patients suffering from chronic pain. 

The lab is based at the Center of Functionally Integrative Neuroscience (CFIN) and Danish Pain Research Center (DPRC) at Aarhus University.
