  • This paper reviews the peripheral and central neural mechanisms underlying pain from articular tissues innervated by spinal and trigeminal afferents. The paper especially addresses trigeminal mechanisms related to pain from the temporomandibular joint and its associated craniofacial musculature. Recent studies have shown the existence of articular nociceptive primary afferents that project to the spinal cord dorsal horn and trigeminal brainstem complex. A particular feature of most neurones… CONTINUE READING
