As described in the American Pain Foundation/CenterWatch Clinical Trial Database under Clinical Trials: Fibromyalgia:

We are currently inviting chronic pain patients to participate in a study to investigate a treatment for pain that uses newly developed brain imaging methods to train participants to control their own brain activation.

All participants in this study will receive a new form of cognitive training for controlling pain.

A central goal of the study is to measure the impact of a new form of cognitive strategies for pain control on activations from brain regions involved in the experience of pain.

Participants will be scanned using functional MRI while they employ cognitive strategies allowing the participant to view their brain activity.

Some participants will see their own brain activation during this process while other participants will see very similar but simulated data that does not come from their brain.
