  1. 1. Brain processing of experimental muscle pain and its interrelation with proprioception and muscle fatigue positron emission tomography study

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : A Korotkov; Högskolan i Gävle.; Umeå universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : Experimental muscle pain; Hypertonic saline; Kinesthesia; Proprioception; Movernent; Vibration; Muscle fatigue; Brain; Imaging; Positron emission tornography; Regional cerebral blood - flow; Movement; Positron emission tomography; Regional cerebral blood flow;

    Abstract : Chronic muscle pain is a significant medical and social problem and better understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms involved is an important requirernent for further development of diagnostics, treatment and rehabilitation methods. Experimental imaging studies have investigated functional neuroanatomy of different pain cornponents. READ MORE
