Peak Alpha Frequency is a Simple and Reliable Metric of Pain Sensitivity

We have shown that peak alpha frequency (PAF) is a simple and reliable metric of pain sensitivity across multiple pain models and time-scales. The speaker will describe ongoing studies of the mechanisms of PAF, including further analysis of the alpha spectrum data, and the use of simultaneous EEG-fMRI. The talk will conclude with new data from a large-scale validation study as well as several findings demonstrating the clinical utility of PAF.
