The pain matrix reloaded: A salience detection system for the body
Neuroimaging and neurophysiological studies have shown that nociceptive stimuli elicit responses in an extensive cortical network including somatosensory, insular and cingulate areas, as well asExpand

Tagging the Neuronal Entrainment to Beat and Meter
We recorded the electroencephalogram while listening to a musical beat and imagined a binary or a ternary meter on this beat (i.e., a march or a waltz). Expand

Across-trial averaging of event-related EEG responses and beyond.
Time-frequency decomposition of the EEG (using the continuous wavelet transform), blind source separation of EEGs (using Independent Component Analysis) and the analysis of event-related brain responses at the level of single trials. Expand

Nociceptive laser-evoked brain potentials do not reflect nociceptive-specific neural activity.
Brief radiant laser pulses can be used to activate cutaneous Adelta and C nociceptors selectively and elicit a number of transient brain responses [laser-evoked potentials (LEPs)] in the ongoing EEG.Expand

Non-phase locked electroencephalogram (EEG) responses to CO2 laser skin stimulations may reflect central interactions between A partial partial differential- and C-fibre afferent volleys.
OBJECTIVE By co-activating A partial partial differential- and C-fibre nociceptors, intense CO2 laser heat stimuli produce a dual sensation, composed of first and second pain, but induce only aExpand

Determinants of laser-evoked EEG responses: pain perception or stimulus saliency?
Although laser-evoked electroencephalographic (EEG) responses are increasingly used to investigate nociceptive pathways, their functional significance remains unclear. The reproducible observation ofExpand

Low intensity intra-epidermal electrical stimulation can activate Aδ-nociceptors selectively
&NA; In the past 30 years, the study of nociception has relied mostly on thermal stimulation to activate nociceptors selectively. However, thermal stimulation suffers from some important limitations.Expand

From the neuromatrix to the pain matrix (and back)
Pain is a conscious experience, crucial for survival. To investigate the neural basis of pain perception in humans, a large number of investigators apply noxious stimuli to the body of volunteersExpand

A multisensory investigation of the functional significance of the “pain matrix”
Functional neuroimaging studies in humans have shown that nociceptive stimuli elicit activity in a wide network of cortical areas commonly labeled as the "pain matrix" and thought to be preferentially involved in the perception of pain. Expand

Selective Neuronal Entrainment to the Beat and Meter Embedded in a Musical Rhythm
Fundamental to the experience of music, beat and meter perception refers to the perception of periodicities while listening to music occurring within the frequency range of musical tempo. Here, weExpand
