Atypical electrophysiological activity during pain observation in amputees who experience synaesthetic pain

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

There are increasing reports of people experiencing pain when observing pain in another. This describes the phenomenon of synaesthetic pain which, until recently, had been primarily reported in amputees with phantom pain. In the current study, we used electroencephalography (EEG) to investigate how amputees who experience synaesthetic pain process pain observed in another.
