Phantom-limb pain as a perceptual correlate of cortical reorganization following arm amputation
TLDR
A very strong direct relationship is reported between the amount of cortical reorganization and the magnitude of phantom limb pain (but not non-painful phantom phenomena) experienced after arm amputation, indicating that phantom-limb pain is related to, and may be a consequence of, plastic changes in primary somatosensory cortex.

Constraint-Induced Therapy of Chronic Aphasia After Stroke
TLDR
Data suggest that the language skills of patients with chronic aphasia can be improved in a short period by use of an appropriate massed-practice technique that focuses on the patients’ communicative needs. Expand
Increased Cortical Representation of the Fingers of the Left Hand in String Players
TLDR
The results suggest that the representation of different parts of the body in the primary somatosensory cortex of humans depends on use and changes to conform to the current needs and experiences of the individual. Expand
Slow potentials of the cerebral cortex and behavior.
TLDR
This review concentrates on scalp-recorded direct current potentials that appear as event-related potentials (ERPs) in humans that have been recorded on the scalp for the first time. Expand
A comparison of narrative exposure therapy, supportive counseling, and psychoeducation for treating posttraumatic stress disorder in an african refugee settlement.
TLDR
Results indicate that NET is a promising approach for the treatment of PTSD for refugees living in unsafe conditions. Expand
Large-scale neural correlates of affective picture processing.
TLDR
Differential activity was found for emotional, compared to neutral, pictures at both of the P3 intervals, as well as enhancement of later posterior positivity. Expand
Treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder by trained lay counselors in an African refugee settlement: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Strictly manualized narrative exposure therapy was compared with more flexible trauma counseling and both active treatment groups were statistically and clinically superior to MG on PTSD symptoms and physical health but did not differ from each other. Expand
The Neural Code of Auditory Phantom Perception
TLDR
It is concluded that cochlear damage, or similar types of deafferentation from peripheral input, triggers reorganization in the central auditory system that produces permanent alterations in the ongoing oscillatory dynamics at the higher layers of the auditory hierarchical stream. Expand
Tinnitus Perception and Distress Is Related to Abnormal Spontaneous Brain Activity as Measured by Magnetoencephalography
TLDR
The spontaneous neuronal activity of a group of individuals with tinnitus is characterised by a marked reduction in alpha power together with an enhancement in delta as compared to a normal hearing control group, which suggests that a neurofeedback approach could reduce the adverse effects of this disturbing condition. Expand
Extensive reorganization of primary somatosensory cortex in chronic back pain patients
TLDR
The data suggest that chronic pain is accompanied by cortical reorganization and may serve an important function in the persistence of the pain experience. Expand
