It is not always clear if infants are experiencing pain during essential clinical procedures. To help us to better understand and measure  infant  pain, we are developing sophisticated algorithms to identify patterns of brain activity that are associated with painful events. We are exploring how these patterns of activity may relate to changes in physiology and how these relationships change during development. We hope to use these measures  to create better treatment for infant pain.
