Abstract

The aim of this PhD project was to assess spatiotemporal changes of self-reported pain intensity and distribution (extent and location) in experimental and clinical pain, using state-of-the-art digital pain mapping technology. The objectives of this PhD were (1) to acquire and quantify changes of momentary pain and discomfort intensity and distribution over time, and (2) to assess the advantages, limitations, and barriers of use of the pain mapping technology.

The current PhD thesis provides evidence of spatiotemporal changes of pain and discomfort and proposes novel digital pain metrics that may support the assessment of pain. Results from this PhD contribute to our understanding of the patients’ pain experience and underscores the use of digital pain mapping in experimental and clinical research.
