  • 2000
TLDR
The recent findings provide new insights into craniofacial pain behavior and are particularly relevant to many approaches currently in use for the management of pain and to the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic procedures aimed at manipulating peripheral inputs and central processes underlying nociceptive transmission and its control within the VBSNC. Expand
Neurobiological mechanisms involved in sleep bruxism.
TLDR
The final section of this review proposes that RMMA during sleep has a role in lubricating the upper alimentary tract and increasing airway patency. Expand

  • 2011
TLDR
The peripheral and central neural mechanisms involved in orofacial inflammatory pain states, including the integral role that peripheral andcentral sensitization play in the pain features that characterize these states are reviewed. Expand
The effects of intra-oral pain on motor cortex neuroplasticity associated with short-term novel tongue-protrusion training in humans
TLDR
It is suggested that nociceptive input modulates MI neuroplasticity associated with novel motor training and may impair the ability to learn a new motor task. Expand
Stimulation of craniofacial muscle afferents induces prolonged facilitatory effects in trigeminal nociceptive brain-stem neurones
TLDR
These findings document for the first time the sensitivity of the cutaneous receptive field properties of V brain‐stem nociceptive neurones to facilitatory influences from deep craniofacial afferents, and point to possible mechanisms that may contribute to the tenderness, spread and referral of pain that may result from trauma to deep craniafacial tissues. Expand
Astroglia in Medullary Dorsal Horn (Trigeminal Spinal Subnucleus Caudalis) Are Involved in Trigeminal Neuropathic Pain Mechanisms
TLDR
Findings provide the first documentation that astroglia is involved in the enhanced nociceptive responses of functionally identified Vc nocICEptive neurons and in the associated orofacial hyperalgesia following trigeminal nerve injury. Expand
Relationships between craniofacial pain and bruxism.
TLDR
This review will address the current understanding of classification issues, epidemiology and neurobiological mechanisms of craniofacial pain, and enable clinicians to understand the reasons why simple cause-effect relationships between bruxism and cranioFacial pain are inadequate and the current implications for management of cranioskeletal pain. Expand
Organization of the primate face motor cortex as revealed by intracortical microstimulation and electrophysiological identification of afferent inputs and corticobulbar projections.
TLDR
Clear evidence for multiple representation of a particular muscle is found, thus supporting other investigations of the motor cortex, which indicate that multiple, yet discrete, efferent microzones represent an essential organizational principle of theMotor cortex. Expand
Features of cortically evoked swallowing in the awake primate (Macaca fascicularis).
TLDR
A number of distinct cortical foci may participate in the initiation and modulation of the swallowing synergy as well as in integrating the swallow within the masticatory sequence. Expand
Psychophysical assessment of tactile, pain and thermal sensory functions in burning mouth syndrome
TLDR
These findings do not suggest a psychogenic origin for the alteration of heat pain tolerance in the BMS subjects, but suggest instead specific changes in their peripheral or central sensory functions. Expand
