Comparative study of perceived pain and nociceptive flexion reflex in man

  title={Comparative study of perceived pain and nociceptive flexion reflex in man},
  author={Jean Claude Willer},
The purpose of this study was to compare the amplitude of the flexion reflex of the biceps femoris muscle (BF) with the intensity of the painful sensation elicited by a nociceptive stimulation resulting from application of constant-current either on the sural nerve or on the skin in its distal receptive field. Experiments were carried out on 15 normal volunteers. It was observed that: (1) Stimulation of the sural nerve (either on or through the skin) elicits two different reflex responses in… CONTINUE READING
