Neurophysiology of the cortical pain network: revisiting the role of S1 in subjective pain perception via standardized low-resolution brain electromagnetic tomography (sLORETA).
UNLABELLED Multiple studies have supported the usefulness of standardized low-resolution brain electromagnetic tomography (sLORETA) in localizing generators of scalp-recorded potentials. The currentExpand

Tonic pain and continuous EEG: Prediction of subjective pain perception by alpha-1 power during stimulation and at rest
OBJECTIVE Pain neurophysiology has been chiefly characterized via event-related potentials (ERPs), which are exerted using brief, phase-locked noxious stimuli. Striving for objectively characterizingExpand

Temporal changes in cortical activation during conditioned pain modulation (CPM), a LORETA study
&NA; For most healthy subjects, both subjective pain ratings and pain‐evoked potentials are attenuated under conditioned pain modulation (CPM; formerly termed diffuse noxious inhibitory controls, orExpand

‘Pain inhibits pain’ mechanisms: Is pain modulation simply due to distraction?
&NA; ‘Diffuse noxious inhibitory controls’ (DNIC), a form of supraspinal descending endogenous analgesia, requires a noxious conditioning stimulus for pain attenuation. This may be partly dependentExpand

Response selection and execution in patients with Parkinson's disease.
Different studies report diverse, sometimes conflicting findings, regarding the ability of Parkinson's disease (PD) patients to benefit from advanced cuing in choice reaction time (RT). Thus,Expand

Characteristics of Response to Experimental Pain in Sexually Abused Women
ObjectivesWomen with a history of sexual abuse (SA) commonly report greater pain symptoms. It is still unclear whether enhanced pain susceptibility is the result of altered pain processing andExpand

Recruitment of attentional resources during visuomotor tracking: effects of Parkinson's disease and age.
The ability to recruit attentional resources during distracted tracking was studied in 19 moderate PD patients, 21 healthy elderly subjects and 20 young controls. All subjects tracked a 1-cm circleExpand
