The Torres Lab published “Personalized Biometrics of Physical Pain Agree with Psychophysics by Participants with Sensory over Responsivity”, Journal of Personalized Medicine.


The work stemmed from a collaborative effort between the Rutgers Sensory Motor Integration Lab and several groups in Israel, including labs at Tel Aviv University, Haifa University and clinicians at the Rambam Medical Center. Former postdoc in the lab Dr. Ryu is the leading author. The work offers a new stochastic characterization of pain sensation through EEG signals in people with sensory over-responsivity in relation to controls. The biometrics are amenable to create an new objective standard scale of physiological pain sensation.
