The purpose of this study is to find the connection between chronic pain and the way your brain decides how you think and feel. We'll ask you to complete various tasks while using EEG to measure your brain waves. We will use this information to compare the brain circuitry between those who live with chronic pain associated with TMD to those who live without chronic pain.
The Herman Darrow Lab is looking for participants with chronic pain and/or depression as well as healthy participants to examine how cognition is affected by pain and depression. We aim to uncover the most affected circuit in each participant by combining functional MRI and EEG with magnetic stimulation to help understand each participant’s anatomy and physiology using a personalized approach.
