The exteroceptive suppression periods (ES) in human jaw-closing muscles can be conditioned by a wide range of somatosensory stimuli and cognitive states. The aim of this study was to examine the effects of tonic experimental jaw-muscle pain versus remote muscle pain on the short-latency (ES1) and long-latency (ES2) reflex in the jaw-closing muscles. Twelve healthy subjects participated in the first experiment with jaw-muscle pain. In random order 5% hypertonic or 0.9% isotonic saline was… CONTINUE READING
