Rein for pain lays mainly in the brain, Stanford researchers find

back; the third was shown different areas of the brain that don't process pain, and members of the fourth group were shown someone else's brain activity.

None of these control subjects showed an ability to control pain levels.

"Real-time functional neuroimaging is a wonderful tool for investigating the neurosystems in the brain responsible for the perception and processing of pain," Mackey said. "It allows us to do that in ways that we've never been able to before."

The study, which included 36 healthy subjects and eight subjects with chronic pain, was co-sponsored by researcher Christopher deCharms and his Bay Area company, Omneuron Inc. It was co-funded by the National Institutes of Health and Stanford University. Mackey and his Stanford collaborators have no financial ties to the company. Other Stanford researchers involved in the study include Fumiko Maeda, MD, PhD, research associate; Gary Glover, PhD, professor of radiology, and John Pauly, PhD, associate professor of electrical engineering. Former Stanford collaborators include David Ludlow, Deepak Soneji and John Gabrieli.
