About the Pain research laboratory
We focus on understanding the psychological aspects of acute and chronic pain throughout the human lifespan. We aim to improve how pain is managed by addressing its psychological correlates.
We have a dedicated temperature-controlled laboratory, with specialist equipment that allows us to explore how people react to pain. For example, we can present participants with highly repeatable stimuli, such as heat, cold or vibration. We then measure their responses to these stimuli.
We also have a private waiting area and kitchen.
