Research: "Investigating the role of Positive/Neutral emotional state, and Presence/Absence of a Partner on experimental induced pain: a laser evoked potential study".
Previously, I investigated the role of Neurofeedback therapy and neuropsychic therapy for patients with traumatic brain injury in the national institute of mental health and neurosciences Bangalore with an fMRI, EEG study.
Currently i am working in the field of Pain Modulation. My study aims at disentangling the role of positive valence from the role of sociality in the pain reduction we observe for social
support. Thus, we plan to compare the effect of Positive/Neutral emotions in the Presence/Absence of a partner, or an object touching participants while receiving thermal painful stimuli. We will measure subjective pain ratings and EEG responses to noxious stimuli.
