Abstract
Most brain imaging studies of pain are done using a two-state subtraction design (state-related design). More recently
event-related functional magnetic reasonance imaging (fMRI) has also been used for studying pain. Both designs
severely limit the application of the technology to clinical pain states. Recently we demonstrated that monitoring time
