Heterotopic low-frequency stimulation induces nociceptive LTD within the same central receptive field in man


Electrical low-frequency stimulation (LFS) evokes long-term depression (LTD) of nociception. Human studies suggested a strictly homotopic organization. This study hypothesizes that even heterotopic LFS evokes LTD within the same receptive field (RF). In 33 healthy volunteers, painful electrical test stimulation and LFS were applied to the low back by a… (More)
