At the MEG lab of the Montreal Neurological Institute a study on the analgesic effects of distraction and attention has been conducted. Healthy subjects received painful electrical stimuli at their right thumb while they were paying attention to the stimuli or were distracted from the stimuli. With MEG (magneto encephalography) the cortical processing of the stimuli has been recorded and I am analysing the data. I will shortly introduce the MEG measurements, explain the data analysis I have done so far and present some preliminary results. It is still work in progress, so questions and suggestions are welcome.
