报告内容简介:

Non-invasive neuroimaging techniques have  been widely used to investigate pain in health and disease, with the aim of  finding new approaches to alleviate pain and improve patient wellbeing. Due to  the low signal-to-noise ratio, high dimensional, and sparse properties of  neuroimaging data, machine learning techniques have been introduced and received  increasingly attention in clinical decision-making and therapeutic development  of pain research. In this talk, I will introduce our recent work in combing  machine learning and neuroimaging with the applications from studying pain  mechanism to pain diagnosis, and ultimately analgesia. First, I will present our  work on studying neural mechanisms of experimental pain, with a focus on how  pre-stimulus brain activity modulating subjective pain perception. Next, I will  explain the importance of developing neuroimaging-based diagnostic tools for  pain and present our work in assessing subjective pain perception in healthy and  patient populations. Finally, I will introduce our ongoing work on developing  individualized treatment plans for chronic low back pain based on functional  brain connectome.
