Functional neuroimaging of conversion disorder: The role of ancillary activation

Matthew J. Burke, Omar Ghaffar, W. Richard Staines, Jonathan Downar, Anthony Feinstein
2014 NeuroImage: Clinical  
A block design was used with 4 s of stimulation followed by 26 s of rest, the pattern repeated 10 times. Event-related group averages of the BOLD response were compared between conditions.  ...  Methods: Ten subjects meeting clinical criteria for unilateral sensory conversion disorder underwent fMRI during which a vibrotactile stimulus was applied to anesthetic and sensate areas.  ...  Acknowledgements An abstract for this manuscript was presented at the American Academy of Neurology Annual Meeting; Philadelphia, PA; April 26-May 2, 2014.  ...

Conclusions: cVEMPs evoked by vibration are often, but not exclusively, inhibitory in nature. Excitatory responses may be evoked when the direction of initial tap stimulation is reversed.  ...  While commonly evoked by air-conducted (AC) sound, interest is growing in cVEMPs evoked by vibration, however little is known about vibration-cVEMP properties.  ...  Results: The same electrical stimuli evoked different VOR-responses.  ...
