PAIN PERCEPTION AND STRESS REDUCTION FOR MIGRAINES

What we are studying

We are conducting a study to better understand pain and we are looking for healthy volunteers. We will be comparing the responses of healthy volunteers to the responses of adults with migraines who have already participated in this study. This study involves one study visit, lasting approximately 1.5 hours, during which participants will complete a series of questionnaires. In addition, participants will be introduced to a heat stimulus paradigm that may produce a feeling of pain.
