The Center for Pain and the Brain is a pain research lab that is led by a team of renowned researchers, pediatric neurologists, psychologists and physician-scientists committed to making a difference in pain research. Using brain imaging techniques, The Center for Pain and the Brain aims to improve scientific understanding of the underlying neural pathways involved in acute and chronic pain conditions and translate that research into clinical practices and therapies.

Also known as the Pain/Anesthesia Imaging Neuroscience (P.A.I.N) Group, this lab is led by Dr. David Borsook, MD PhD and Dr. Lino Becerra, PhD. The research facility is based out of Boston Children’s Hospital, with additional locations at Massachusetts General Hospital and McLean Hospital.
