Neuroimaging Effects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in Fibromyalgia

This study design has two components: 1) a cross sectional assessment of brain connectivity and response to pain in healthy controls and demographically matched fibromyalgia patients, and 2) a longitudinal assessment of the same outcomes in fibromyalgia patients randomized to either CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) or a Disease Education condition. The investigators will evaluate 90 fibromyalgia patients who will receive CBT treatment once a week for 8 weeks, for a total of 8 treatments. Baseline data from these patients will be compared to results from 30 pain-free controls and 60 education program controls. Participants will undergo experimental pain assessments as well as brain neuroimaging.
