What we are studying
We are interested in understanding if and how mindfulness-based mental training impacts the experience of pain using heat to the back of the leg that can produce the feeling of pain and brain scans using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).
Study volunteers will be randomly assigned to a mindfulness-based mental training group or a book-listening control group.
Project sponsored by NIH/NCCIH R00AT008238
Participants will receive $215 for successfully completing ALL study sessions.
