Reactivation of Single-Episode Pain Patterns in the Hippocampus and Decision Making

Description: [Wimmer & Büchel (2021) J Neurosci] Group level maps. After incidental pairing of object pictures with high versus low heat pain, participants were re-exposed to the objects in a test phase. We found that activity in the strongest pain-responsive regions including the anterior insula did not show reactivation of pain-related patterns during re-exposure. However, we found that activity in the hippocampus significantly discriminated pain associations. Further, in a searchlight analysis we found that the degree of anterior hippocampal reactivation was positively correlated with participant memory for painful episodes.
