LEPs and the primary somatosensory cortex (S1)

30/08/2011 22:40
In their first paper together, Elia and Li tried different source analysis approaches on 61-channel LEPs collected from 35 participants, aiming to clarify the long-debated issue of the contribution of S1 to the LEP response. To read more, click here or download the paper from the...

Crossed hand analgesia - media coverage.

18/07/2011 21:40
Our recent result that crossing the hand has an analgesic effect (for the paper published in the June issue of Pain click here), has been featured by, among others, the BBC and the New Scientist. Click here for a minilecture on the UCL YouTube channel!

MRC PhD Studentship available!

New Review paper on the functional significance on the "pain matrix"

18/10/2010 22:47
A review summarising the significance of some of our recent results on the functional significance of the brain responses to nociceptive stimuli (e.g. Iannetti et al 2008, Mouraux and Iannetti 2009, Mouraux et al 2010) has been published on the August 2010 issue of Experimental Brain Research. For...

We offer a PhD studentship to work in the lab on "translational studies of pain", in co-supervision with Professor Tony Dickenson ( This is part of the scheme "UCL Grand Challenge PhD Studentships in Biomedicine". If you think you are interested, or have a suitable...

Li's new paper!

16/02/2010 21:38
Congratulations to Li for his first publication, which came out in the March issue of NeuroImage. The paper describes a new technique to detect optimally the N1 wave of laser-evoked potentials (LEPs), even at single-trial level. All this is implemented in an user-friendly Matlab software that can...

Single-trial analysis of ERPs

14/02/2010 15:12
Measuring stimulus-evoked EEG responses at single-trial level is desirable, as the trial-to-trial variability often contains important pyhysiological information.

Functional significance of laser-evoked potentials (LEPs)

14/02/2010 15:11
Laser stimuli activate selectively pain-related afferents in the skin, and evoke brain responses that can be detected by EEG (laser-evoked potentials, LEPs). Despite being widely used, the functional significance of LEPs is still unclear. When single laser stimuli are delivered, the magnitude of...

Our broad field of interest is the neurophysiology of sensory system in humans. We are particularly interested on the functioning of the somatosensory and nociceptive systems, to understand how somatosensory stimuli give rise to bodily experiences and how these experiences are modulated by...
