Our vision is founded on the idea that publicly funded, analyzed and published brain imaging studies should be available and openly accessible for new analyses. This creates new research opportunities with increased statistical power that comes from large numbers.

Additionally, by reducing barriers to entry and risk exposure for new investigators, OpenPain provides an environment that facilitates education and entry of new investigators into the field, encourages innovative thinking, geographically unrestricted collaboration and the spontaneous emergence of communities self-organized around common goals.
