Metabolite concentrations in the anterior cingulate cortex predict high neuropathic pain impact after spinal cord injury.

Abstract

Persistent pain is a common reason for reduced quality of life after a spinal cord injury (SCI). Biomarkers of neuropathic pain may facilitate translational research and the understanding of underlying mechanisms. Research suggests that pain and affective distress are anatomically and functionally integrated in the anterior cingulate cortex and can modulate… (More)
