Altered neural oscillations within and between sensorimotor cortex and parietal cortex in chronic jaw pain

Chronic jaw pain attenuates rather than magnifies neural responses to heat stimuli

Functional brain activity during motor control and pain processing in chronic jaw pain

chronic jaw pain is associated with changes in how the brain processes motor and pain-related information even when the effector …

(PERSPECTIVES) Neurophysiological evidence of the dynamic and adaptive pain-motor interaction

The dynamicand adaptive nature of the pain-motorinteraction suggests that regions beyond theprimary motor cortex play a critical role …
