Colocalized Structural and Functional Changes in the Cortex of Patients with Trigeminal Neuropathic Pain

Abstract

BACKGROUND Recent data suggests that in chronic pain there are changes in gray matter consistent with decreased brain volume, indicating that the disease process may produce morphological changes in the brains of those affected. However, no study has evaluated cortical thickness in relation to specific functional changes in evoked pain. In this study we… (More)
