Neural mechanisms underlying deafferentation pain: a hypothesis from a neuroimaging perspective

Journal of Orthopaedic Science, 04/23/2012

Hanakawa T – This finding indicates that motor, somatosensory, and pain systems communicate among each other via the neural network. A better understanding of the plastic mechanisms influencing such cross–talk among these systems will help develop therapeutic interventions using brain stimulation and neurofeedback.
