About the Project

The project involves simultaneous imaging of the brain and spinal cord using Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Humans. The successful applicant will conduct a project evaluating changes in the connectivity between the brain and the spinal cord following the acquisition of new motor skills during the experience of pain. More information will be provided upon request.
