Little is known about the cerebellar involvement in pain processing in spite of the fact that the cerebellum probably plays a crucial role in pain-related behavior. Using functional magnetic resonance imaging we examined the differential cerebellar activation in 18 healthy subjects in relation to their perceived pain-intensity of noxious and non-noxious thermal stimuli. In contrast to non-noxious (40 degrees C) stimuli, noxious (48.5 degrees C) stimuli revealed activation in the deep cerebellar… CONTINUE READING
