A team from the Gail and Gerald Oppenheimer Family Center for Neurobiology of Stress at the University of California, Los Angeles, is designing a standardized database that will store brain scans and other health data to aid researchers in understanding chronic pain. The Pain and Interoception Imaging Network, which is being developed through a $300,000 NIH grant, allows researchers to view metadata on more than 1,000 patients such as symptoms, gene expression and psychosocial factors.
