Pain in the Brain Study - Volunteers needed (London Area)

Volunteers are required for the Brain in Pain study which is being carried out by The Centre for Psychiatry, Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London.

"The Brain in Pain study seeks to better understand changes in brain chemistry that might explain the pain in fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. To do this, we are using a method of brain scanning that enables us to look at which parts of the brain and which chemicals are active during pain. The study is based in London and is actively recruiting patients with fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome who are NOT currently on ‘centrally acting’ medications (including gabapentin, pregabalin and antidepressants such as duloxetine and amitriptyline) or chronic opiate treatment. The study will reimburse participants for their time. If you are interested in taking part, further information can be obtained from Dr Bourke: This email address is being protected from spambots.
