Pain and Depression in SCI patients
Pain is one of the most demoralising problems following spinal cord injury (SCI) and a challenging issue for researchers and clinicians. The prevalence rate is of about 69% and one third rate their pain as severe. Over the last several years the problem of pain following spinal cord injury (SCI) has received increasing attention.

Voxel-based morphometry (VBM)
To assess degenerative changes in cortical and subcortical regions over time we will apply voxel-based morphometry (VBM) (Ashburner et al., 2003), voxel based cortical thickness (VBCT) and voxel-based quantification (VBQ) of magnetization transfer (MT), longitudinal relaxation rate (R1=1/T1) and R2* relaxation parameters (Draganski et al., 2011; Helms et al., 2009; Weiskopf et al., 2011) in the framework of statistical parametric mapping (SPM) (http://www.fil.ion.ucl.ac.uk/spm) at four different time points within the first year post injury.To assess degenerative changes in cortical and subcortical regions over time we will apply voxel-based morphometry (VBM) (Ashburner et al., 2003), voxel based cortical thickness (VBCT) and voxel-based quantification (VBQ) of magnetization transfer (MT), longitudinal relaxation rate (R1=1/T1) and R2* relaxation parameters (Draganski et al., 2011; Helms et al., 2009; Weiskopf et al., 2011) in the framework of statistical parametric mapping (SPM) (http://www.fil.ion.ucl.ac.uk/spm) at four different time points within the first year post injury.
