Abstract

Chronic pain and sleep impairments are often closely associated. Sleep deprivation results in increased pain perception and lower pain thresholds. We recently developed a new method to study nociceptive processing by simultaneous tracking of nociceptive detection thresholds (NDTs) and evoked potentials (EPs) in response to intra-epidermal electric stimuli. In this work, we study whether we can use this method to assess impaired nociceptive processing after sleep deprivation in a cross-over study on 24 subjects.
