Volunteers Needed for Study on Pain
Wake Forest Baptist Health is conducting a research study with healthy, pain-free volunteers to evaluate the effects of meditation on the feeling of pain. Participants will undergo sensory testing and non-invasive physiological measurements, such as blood pressure and electrocardiography (ECG). We estimate that the entire study will take a total of five hours to complete across fourteen days. Participants will be compensated for their time.
If you are interested in participating or would like additional information, please contact Emily Ansusinha at You may also email Dr. Fadel Zeidan with questions.
