Sensorimotor returning in complex regional pain syndrome parallels pain reduction

Burkhard Pleger, Martin Tegenthoff, Patrick Ragert, Ann-Freya Förster, Hubert R. Dinse, Peter Schwenkreis, Volkmar Nicolas, Christoph Maier
2005 Annals of Neurology  
This suggests that the reversal of tactile impairment and cortical reorganization in CRPS is associated with a decrease in pain.  ...  Patients with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and intractable pain showed a shrinkage of cortical maps on primary (SI) and secondary somatosensory cortex (SII) contralateral to the affected limb.  ...  This research was supported by the Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (Network "Neuropathic Pain" BMBF, 01EM0102).

Role of distorted body image in pain

Martin Lotze, G. Lorimer Moseley
2007 Current Rheumatology Reports  
In this review, we examine the literature relating to body image distortion in people with pain, and we discuss three themes: 1) evidence of distorted body image in people with pain; 2) evidence of distortion  ...  of the neural representations of body image held in primary sensory and primary motor cortex; and 3) clinical findings that correlate with distorted body image, distorted neural representation, or both  ...  This project was supported by a grant of the Ministry of Research and Education in Germany (BMBF), project number 01EM0505.  ...

Temporomandibular Disorder Modifies Cortical Response to Tactile Stimulation

2010 Journal of Pain  
Understanding the complexity of sensory disruption in chronic pain could lead to improved methods for assessing cerebral cortical function in these patients.  ...  Activation of the amygdala in our TMD group could reflect the establishment of aversive associations with tactile stimulation due to the persistence of pain.  ...  Monbureau and Mike Young for technical assistance.  ...

2012 European Journal of Pain  
Unusual symptoms such as digit misidentification and neglect-like phenomena have been reported in complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), which we hypothesized could be explained by parietal lobe dysfunction  ...  Six (27%) subjects failed six or more test categories and demonstrated new clinical signs consistent with their parietal testing impairments, which were impacting significantly on activities of daily living  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank and acknowledge all our patients and healthy volunteers who gave up their time so freely.  ...

The Stochastic Entanglement and Phantom Motor Execution Hypotheses: A Theoretical Framework for the Origin and Treatment of Phantom Limb Pain

Max Ortiz-Catalan
2018 Frontiers in Neurology  
Stochastic entanglement of the pain neurosignature, or connectome, with impaired sensorimotor circuitry is proposed as an alternative hypothesis for the genesis of PLP, and the implications and predictions  ...  The proposed stochastic entanglement hypothesis of PLP can be generalized to neuropathic pain due to sensorimotor impairment, and can be used to design suitable therapeutic treatments.  ...  In addition, somatosensory cortical reorganization has been observed in other conditions such as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) (34) , and carpal tunnel syndrome (35) .  ...
