Christopher D. Black, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Health and Exercise Science, Dodge Family College of Arts and Sciences, led the study. A study led by researchers at the University of Oklahoma shows a connection between symptomatic COVID-19 infections and the ability of the central nervous system to respond to painful stimuli.


The study’s finding shows a connection between participants who had experienced symptomatic, verified COVID-19 infections and the ability of their central nervous system to respond normally to a conditioned pain modulation test.
