We are running a study to understand the mechanisms of chronic pain, in particular Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). Chronic pain is pain that has been experienced most days for at least three months. Some chronic pain conditions are associated with changes in the way that people notice or tend to sensations and other information about their affected limb. We would like to investigate these changes and hope that the knowledge we gain could eventually improve treatment.
We are looking for people who meet one of the following three criteria:
- have suffered from CRPS for at least three months that primarily affects one upper or lower limb
- have suffered from other chronic pain for at least three months that primarily affects one upper or lower limb
- are healthy and pain-free
- are over 18 years of age
- are fluent in written and spoken English
- don't have a history of neurological disorders (for example stroke, brain injury, or Multiple Sclerosis) or epilepsy
- don’t have severe visual impairments (glasses or contact lenses are not a problem)
What you'll get
- All participants will earn £10 per hour.
- Participants with CRPS/chronic pain will receive reimbursement for travelling expenses.
- Your participation will help contribute to the understanding of chronic pain.
We are accepting participants until 1 March 2020.
