OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to observe areas of brain activation with painful hot stimulation to the trigeminal nerve. STUDY DESIGN Nine healthy pain-free women (mean age 26.2 +/- 6.9 yrs) with a natural, regular menstrual cycle participated in the study. Whole-brain functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data were acquired for each participant on day 2 or 3 after the onset of menses using echo-planar imaging at 1.5T with near-isotropic spatial resolution and a temporal… CONTINUE READING
