Id: NCT02515890

Organisation Name: University of Pittsburgh

Overal Status: Completed

Start Date: November 19, 2015

Last Update: July 1, 2020

Lead Sponsor: University of Pittsburgh

Brief Summary: The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of pain on facilitating long-term auditory memory in the presence and absence of distinct intravenous anesthetics. The ability to identify previously presented words from a list assessed the degree of memory formation. In a subset of subjects, functional magnetic resonance imaging was used to identify the neural correlates of memory inhibition or facilitation by the combination of pain and anesthetic used.

Conditions:
  • Amnesia
  • Pain
  • Anesthesia
