This oral presentation will include a video summary of the reported work, as well as graphic data showing results in an unusual experiment. An experience Sufi practitioner was observed during the 2012 AAPB meeting in Portland, during which time he pierced himself with skewers, and did not experience significant pain or bleeding. As a scientific experiment, his EEG was recorded with 19 channels, and a continuous sLORETA reconstruction of his brain activity was performed. Using a normative database (John et al.), it was possible to create images of unusual brain activation and de-activation in specific locations related to pain perception. The results will be show and discussed, providing evidence that this individual effectively self-regulated his brain activity in specific locations, leading to the ability to endure an otherwise painful experience, remaining evidently comfortable and healthy.
