AIMS To investigate whether local administration of nerve growth factor (NGF) decreases the mechanical threshold (MT) of putative nociceptive masseter afferent fibers as part of its mechanism of mechanical sensitization. METHODS Electrophysiologic recordings were made from masseter afferents and a randomized, blinded approach was used to test the effects… CONTINUE READING
