Decoding an Individual's Sensitivity to Pain from the Multivariate Analysis of EEG Data

E. Schulz, A. Zherdin, L. Tiemann, C. Plant, M. Ploner
2011 Cerebral Cortex  
We repeatedly applied identical painful stimuli to healthy human subjects and recorded brain activity by using electroencephalography (EEG).  ...  Here, we aimed to predict the individual pain sensitivity from brain activity.  ...  To this end, an MVPA technique was trained on the single-trial EEG data of healthy human subjects to investigate whether it is possible to predict another individual's pain sensitivity from brain activity  ...

2008 Human Brain Mapping  
We here review evidence that baseline brain activity in the areas involved in sensory perception predict subsequent variations in sensory awareness.  ...  We place these findings in light of recent findings on the architecture of spontaneous BOLD fluctuations in the awake human brain, and discuss the possible origins of the observed baseline brain activity  ...  In parallel, recent functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies have identified spontaneous fluctuations in neural activity in the resting human brain.

Brain Signature Predicts Negative Emotion in Individuals

Janelle Weaver
2015 PLoS Biology  
But there has been a pressing need to identify neural signatures that predict emotional experiences in individuals in order to translate brain-imaging data into clinical applications.  ...  The researchers then used machine-learning algorithms to find global patterns of brain activity that best predicted participants' ratings.  ...  Comparison of the two signatures revealed that the experiences of negative emotion and pain are predicted by distinct patterns of neural activity.  ...
