Highligthts Brains of young adult patients who engage in NSSI differed from non-NSSI patients in reward-processing areas. These differences were evident when patients self-administered a painful stimulus in the scanner. ÒReliefÓ correlated with BOLD signal in thalamus and striatumÐareas implicated in pain and reward-processing. Connectivity between OFC and ACC was diminished in NSSI patients compared with psychiatric controls.
