Functional MRI (fMRI) studies have been used to investigate how the brain processes noxious stimuli in osteoarthritis (OA) and to identify the cortical location of pain perception. However, no consensus has been reached regarding brain activity associated with pain-induced conditions in OA patients. We examined cerebral responses using intra-epidermal electrical stimulation of the . knee in knee OA patients. To replicate the pain of knee OA in terms of predictability, acute pain generated by… CONTINUE READING
