Noxious stimulation of skeletal muscle evokes pain that is often referred into distal areas. Despite referred pain being of significant clinical importance, the brain regions responsible for the perception of referred pain remain unexplored. The aim of this investigation is to define these regions using functional magnetic resonance imaging. We induced muscle pain by hypertonic saline injections (0.5 ml) into the tibialis anterior (TA) or flexor carpi radialis (FCR) muscle. TA injections evoked… CONTINUE READING
