More information

We are a team of clinical doctors and researchers in neuroscience at the University of Zurich and the University of Cambridge developing a tool to predict future pain levels in Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. We would like to test how different emotional or congitive variables (such as stress, brain fog, etc.) influence wherether patients with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome will get worse in the enar future. For that, we are looking to recruit patients with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome into a study which can be conducted remotely at the patients' home.

Evaluating wellbeing by subjective and objective method is often used as psychological tools to understand health quality and disease. There is limited understanding of the current tools used in the clinic to capture how people truly feel and decide on interventions to improve lfie quality. This study investigates the dynamics of the changes in experiences (types of pain, emotions, attention, fatigue, motivation) including the dimensions of subjective experience, as well as brain activity. The study is aimed for completion by 2023.

Participants will be sent an EEG headband which has electrodes measuring brain activity. They will be asked to complete a pain diary for several weeks using an online tool (website or app). Patients will also receive individual feedback about which variables predict whether their condition will get worse. The study obtained ethical approval at the Unversity of Cambridge.
