Secondary Hyperalgesia
measure of central sensitisation, strong role for decending modulatory system partiularly RVM
1 of 10
Cortical responses in Pain Modulation
Acc, Insula
2 of 10
Activation of pain modulation regions
pregenual Acc/vmPFC, vlPFC, dlPFC
3 of 10
Stimulus/Controlability Overlap
Insula, Dorsal Ac - percieved control decreases activation in pain regions
4 of 10
evidence for pain matrix activation
alteration of cingulate activation when subject are distracted/involved in difficult tast
5 of 10
Decending control sysem
interactive with brain stem regions like PAG and RVM to influence ascending nociceptive input
6 of 10
Cortical decending modulation
Perceieve control (vlPFC), Placebo analgesia (vmPFC, PAG, dlPFC), Attention to pain (vmPFC, PAG)
