Electrical low-frequency stimulation (LFS) inhibits pain perception and nociceptive processing as shown by psychophysical and electrophysiological means (long-term depression, LTD). Information regarding central mechanisms involved in LTD induction and maintenance are still missing. This study hypothesizes that electrical LFS induces changes in activation pattern of pain-related brain areas. Thirty-two electrophysiological and psychophysical experiments were performed in 16 healthy volunteers… CONTINUE READING
