Exteroceptive suppression of temporalis muscle activity: perspectives in headache and pain research.

Abstract

The paper describes possible future applications of the exteroceptive suppression (ES) of temporalis muscle activity in headache and pain research. ES is examined as a method for investigating the pathophysiology of pain mechanisms, for assisting clinical diagnosis, and for evaluating therapeutic effects. ES is one of the newest methods in headache research which permits an objective analysis of head pain as well as pain mechanisms and accordingly has an important future in headache research.
