Cortical thickness correlates of pain and temperature sensitivity
Pain, 04/27/2012Erpelding N et al.
Authors also found that greater heat pain (HP) sensitivity correlated with thickening in the posterior midcingulate cortex and the orbitofrontal cortex. These cortical gray matter correlates of thermal and pain sensitivity provide a neural basis for individual differences in thermal sensitivity.
