BACKGROUND To elucidate neural correlates associated with processing of tonic aching pain, the authors used high-field (3-T) functional magnetic resonance imaging with a blocked parametric study design and characterized regional brain responses to electrical stimulation according to stimulus intensity-response functions. METHODS Pain was induced in six male volunteers using a 5-Hz electrical stimulus applied to the right index finger. Scanning sequences involved different levels of… CONTINUE READING
