Differentiating noxious- and innocuous-related activation of human somatosensory cortices using temporal analysis of fMRI.


The role of the somatosensory cortices (SI and SII) in pain perception has long been in dispute. Human imaging studies demonstrate activation of SI and SII associated with painful stimuli, but results have been variable, and the functional relevance of any such activation is uncertain. The present study addresses this issue by testing whether the time… (More)
